Too often it's been like this:
1. Release is tagged.
2. Potentially unstable changes that have been held back waiting for the
release are commited.
3. Someone discovers some bad bug in the release.
4. A retag is needed, but special care has to be taken so those changes
made in 2 won't create other problems, needing yet another retag.
If the release is branched instead of tagged, it won't be spoiled by 2.
