Yes, the convention I would like is that Release x.y.z is associated 
with branch AOOxyz. We may need to change the format if any layer goes 
beyond one digit, but we can cross that bridge when we get to it.

My view on this is that we should check in the changes for 4.1.3, freeze 
its code, and then create AOO414 as a copy of AOO413.
