This is the point of the way we handle CVS.
Every time we make a stable release out of the current unstable series, we
make a branch. We did this for 1.0, and 1.2. This way the unstable series
is never impeded. It just has to undergo a code freeze at the very first
relaese of a new stable series (1.0.0, and 1.2.0).
It does make for more work in merging because we don't constrain ourselves,
and because I don't know the tricks for moving changes back and forth
between the branches easily.
