Yeah.  This is a problem.   We have been running for months w/ blockers and
criticals at about 8 and 30 count respectively and the number hasn't been
dropping. That the number has gone up because we've called for branch is
good I think because it means folks are starting to act as though 0.95/0.96
is going to happen whereas -- witness the unchanged blocker/critical count
over months -- this was not the case previously.

Regards the pain of committing in multiple places,  yeah, I think there is
no way out around it, not unless we want to put the 0.95/0.96 branch off
until, when?
