    In general, I think this would be a bad thing for the stable branch.
    Production boxen need fixes and patches in a timely manner, much more than
    development machines.

    An alternate approach would be to add all stable-branch patches to a
    checklist for the dev branch, so that added stable features don't slip
    through the cracks in dev.
