You'd _have_ to switch between branches at some point (unless we
branch for release immediately once the timeframe has been decided
on), and regardless of everything else the tarballs still need to be
tested as we come close to the finish line because that's what
actually gets released. But I guess the latter can be automated, and
on the whole, I agree.
For tarballs testing, how about we modify 'regression.py' to check
some specific location for new tarballs and give preference to them
over the branch testing for one round?
