I think so.

If things come to worst, we have to branch for a release.  Like all
projects with parts in different flux do.

Who is talking about standalone releases?  I was just saying that I
would want to stop them completely.  A standalone compilation, on the
other hand, is one started from within the preview directory.  It
leads to code/packages/documentation that makes sense even when
combined with different AUCTeX versions.  Yet.

Uh, we already have a separate directory for extra stuff related to
separate releases.  The main tarballs are different though: pretty
much every project on distributes them from the main
