This would be another reason to use a CVS branch.  Put the release code
on the branch; let people continue committing whatever they happen to be
working on, on the trunk; if it turns out to be a critical bug fix and
does not destabilize anything, selectively merge it to the branch.

It'll be 5 years in August (June if you count pre-releases).
