This is how the Python release process works. At the moment we seem to be
following something more like the Mozilla process, where we cut a branch for
the upcoming release once we're past the point of adding new features. 

Having said that, I'd say the time to branch is at the point where we're about
to cut the first beta. So we've possibly done it too soon here. 

OTOH, I don't know what is stopping us from cutting 1.0b1 in a couple of 
weeks, with a possible RC a couple of weeks after that.
