Uh, then people that have been tracking 'maint' get something backward
incompatible before a release has been tagged or announced.  I think
that's rude.  How did this become the release process?  I thought we
declared a merge deadline for 'master', feature freeze period, then
tagged the release on 'master'.  That way people tracking 'maint' only
get the new release changes after the release has been made.
