Thanks Gediminas, the diagram is very clear and unambiguous.

The problem with this scheme is that 2-0-0 is "two branches removed"
from HEAD, which is a significant problem in that important patches
(i.e. for stoppers) have to be committed to three places, and ordinary
bugfixes to two places (i.e. 2-0 and HEAD).  That's a bit burdensome...
which is why I propose to hold new features until 2-0-1 branches, or
else put them on their own branch.
