Not knowing the nature of the changes, etc, I don't mean to provide
this as a comment on that, but I'd just like to bring back up this


and see if that's still the plan?  If you're actually changing how
things are working inside (in the sense of enhancing for new modules
and content like the NASB and not just for fixing bugs), then maybe it
is time to branch and allow for bug fixing/feature branches to develop
separately until 1.7 is made?
