I think that anything that can't be fixed by some text in the KNOWN_ISSUES
file means that we need an RC4.

The image I had in my mind was that when 1.0.0 is released we branch; then
bug fixes go into both branches and new features go into trunk only. Then,
maybe when the KNOWN_ISSUES file is empty, we can release 1.0.1...
Branching now just means that there is some merging to be done sooner (if
RC3 doesn't become 1.0).
