I suppose this depends on the plans for 1.3.29. We could try and plan
what goes into the release. I don't really have any big plans. I'd
suggest we put in regular expressions, and I think Marcelo has various
other plans. I'd rather see fewer changes in a release and release more
often. This release is taking too long due to fundamental changes and
not enought broad testing while going along. I think branches are okay,
so long as you manage it and deal with the merges to the main branch.
It's a good way to peacefully develop something without affecting
everyone else, then bring it all over to the main branch when well tested.
