Even so, leave it 'draft' until it's actually being used. Changing
minds is expensive otherwise.

All fixes to master. In the extraordinary case where a bugfix release
cannot be made from master, a branch could work. We never needed this
in e.g. CZMQ. I doubt we'd need it in libzmq. I absolutely recommend
against branches unless it's the only option. (And I think we've
designed ourselves space to never need that option.)

Seems Kevin has solved this, almost :)
