My understanding of that ticket is it's really, "try to get this done before
that release."  The monthly releases are glorified snapshots, and to block one
for a specific feature seems almost never likely to be warranted.  We
originally started using these as a way to track short-term goals, but we'd
bump things to the next release's ticket if they didn't get done in time.

This didn't end up being very effective, but having a "stuff to merge after
blead opens" seemed (and was) useful.  The name's a bit of a misleading name,
though.  That's on me.
