The branch exists basically because it can't removed anymore, further, when
2.0.4 was released it wasn't clear what the next release will be 2.0.4a because
of a heavy bug in 2.0.4, 2.0.6 or 2.1.1. Recently, there were some more merges
to it because it might be that a 2.0.4a for go32v2 will be created.
