	Oh, and I forgot to address this! I think that we've actually handled
this recently, with our new freeze policy where we actually branch
immediately, instead of ever freezing, so I think that this won't be a
problem anymore in the future, although it's important that we pay equal
attention to trunk reviews and branch reviews, when we're in a
pre-release branch situation.
