Exactly. Think glibc as another example. Back then when the glibc people did 
their development work on Branched it was generally viewed as too disruptive. 
So the current development branch is only in Rawhide. F18 has the 2.16 release 
instead which matured in Rawhide since right after F17 was branched off.

Of course, there's nothing in Lennart's proposal which would prevent that way 
of work. But still, the early branching model does have its advantages.
