A question has been asked about branching release25-maint at the time 
of beta1. I was actually thinking about doing this for 2.5rc1 - once 
we're in release candidate stage we want to really be careful about 
checkins. I'm not sure it's worth branching at beta1 - it's a bit 
more work all round, vs what I suspect will be a small amount of 2.6 
work landing on the trunk nownownow. Also, I'd prefer people's cycles 
be spent on bughunting 2.5 rather than worrying about shiny new 
features for the release that's, what, 18 months away? 

Anyway, thought I'd open this up for discussion...
