New branch on Debian?

Today I have read a post from Raphael Hertzog, taking about the possibility of a new Debian branch to be created.

Debian already has three branches for those not familiar with it, O.K. maybe four branches.

* Old-Stable
* Stable
* Testing
* Unstable

From Wikipedia we have:

* stable, currently aliased lenny, is the current release that has stable and well tested software. Stable is made by freezing testing for a few months where bugs are fixed to make the distribution as stable as possible; then the resulting system is released as stable. It is updated only if major security or usability fixes are incorporated. After Debian 6.0, new releases will be made every two years. Stable’s CDs and DVDs can be found in the Debian web site.
