Branching for a major release is most appropriate when trunk is in a  
settled down/stable state. It's not intended to happen right after a  
number of major last minute changes have been committed. Quickly  
committing a bunch of major changes would mainly serve to delay the  
branching, or they might not be included in the branch anyway.
