    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.

    Democracy is the working model of any form of mob rule. The fruit of
    democracy, if unchecked by respect for human rights, is gang violence.
