I'm suggesting that we tag (with a branchable tag) the freeze point. If
you're going to work on stuff not going in 1.33 commit your changes on a
branch that you make from there. After the release, merge all your stuff
back onto the main branch. This way, all the developers (and testers)
working on the release continue as normal.
