Perhaps I'm not following what has been said here. I thought it was
being suggested we use trunk "forever" as the 3.4 development tree,
rather than branching it at some point.

I'm all for RTC'ing trunk sometime just before an RC is cut and then
branching once the final release is cut. That's what we've always done
-- so no change there. I think it's even in the release procedures.
