in my opinion, the value of not forking would outweigh the risk of
giving commit privs to someone from (gasp!) sugarlabs. ;-)  (that really
is just an opinion, of course.  it's not my call.)

it also seems like this problem could be well solved with branches and
tags.  i haven't looked at the o-o-b tree, but i assume the current
13.2.0 point could be frozen (branch or tag) and other work could
continue, and eventually branched or tagged itself.
