Subject: branch for 3.5 today/tonight/this weekend?

branch for 3.5 today/tonight/this weekend?

I think we agreed in the last thread that giving users more time to
test out "RC" builds would be great, and considering the general plan
is to release around xmas (3 weeks), would there be any objections to
branching today, or on the weekend?
Here is my reasoning:
1) doing that would give users 3 weeks to tests before release
2) there is one week to go before freeze anyway which means no biggish
features will go in anyway
3) I' not happy with the current state of the sbs stuff and want to
commit FS#10824 and 10709 (I think thats the numbers) but doing so
will definitely piss people off, and I'm out right not waiting a month
more to check them in.

The only downsides I can see is its more time to backport any bug
fixes... but if any really big ones go in (doubtful) then maybe we
want to rebranch anyway...
