[wp-hackers] Grab a seat. On Delaying 2.2, separating tables

Matt, I have not seen your statements on this matter sway a single
person. The other committing devs have come out against releasing with
tags on the 2.2 milestone date.

The correctness of any one implementation of tags is not the subject
here. It's the development process.

To include a premature feature in an on-time release degrades the
quality of the product. I refer to not only the code but the state of
the community. Increments are supposed to be in the direction of
better, not merely more. Better would be to release on-time with a
modest set of stable upgrades.

To block release while the one new feature gets sorted out would be a
maladjustment of priorities. If 2.2 seems light on sex appeal, so be
it. Better to keep the release date as promised.

Proposed plan of action:

Don't touch trunk. Leave trunk out of this.
Create a 2.2 branch, remove tags from it, ship 2.2-alpha.
