I think one of the goals of the release is specifically that it allows
us a little more freedom in developing the current-build. We can still
always ask people to confirm that their specific bug happens in the
current build. Even if it has some new ones, what we want to know is "is
THAT bug still around." But I think it'd be good to relax things
immediately after release, get a few "it needs wider testing, but it'll
probably work" features in, so that they can start getting that wider
testing that they need.

It's the ideal time for significant changes (like maybe the list
viewport patch, if it's ready by the end of the freeze) since they'll be
bound to be glitchy, but there's plenty of time for widespread testing
and fixing before the next freeze.

Having releases makes the current build much more of a development
target again than a user build.
