In order to reduce the overhead of commiting bug fixes in both trunk and
the 1.0 branch, you may want to delay the making of the 1.0 branch as
much as possible. Eventually, when you have to start changes that
properly belongs to trunk, then it's time to create the branch, but
meanwhile you can save yourself quite a few syncronization work.

Anyway, it is my pleasure to help finding bugs for NumPy!
