I am not a CVS guru, but I think this model makes perfect sense to me
-- until HEAD is not compatible with 5.0, there is no need to branch.
But then, it sounds like that won't be too long before some major
changes are introduced to HEAD.  But you still might keep your module
HEAD compatible with D5 until the D6 API (or whatever is next)
