I'm probably missing something, but I'm used to internal
branch numbers bearing no resemblance whatsoever to
product releases.

Thus a branch for the stable release would be something
like branch-1_11 with an internal number of 1.1.0.24 (and
this number varies with every file).

The development branch would be called branch-1_12
with internal numbers of 1.1.0.26 etc.

And releases would be 1.12-beta-1.  The beta should be
enough to deter people from downloading it.  By the same
token, you should feel free to release as many betas as
you want, up to 1.12-beta-730, 2 years worth of development!
And then you can switch to 1.12.0, the first non-beta public
release.  Or call it 1.12.1, as you wish.

BFN.  Paul.
