No, you should branch from trunk.  And this branch shouldn't happen 
until a few weeks after 4.6.0 is released, so we can get patches in from 
what I expect will be a much larger flood of bugs immediately after 
4.6.0 comes out.  Then no one needs to worry about committing patches to 
two branches at once until the flood subsides.  This is more or less 
what we've done for 4.4, 4.2, and 4.0... any reason to change that?

(Aside from "waaa, but I want to start adding experimental stuff NOW." 
Use a branch until then.  It's only a couple weeks added on to 2 years.)
