Good question.  I'll try to do the release tonight.  I'll check if
there have been many string changes since 2.6.2.  If there have not
been then I'll release from trunk, otherwise I'll create a branch from
2.6.2 and cherrypick a few changes.

If anyone gets a hankerin' to work on any of this, feel free.  I don't
think I'll be able to start for at least a few more hours.
