For what it's worth the imminent 5.5-RELEASE will be the last one from
RELENG_5.  It will fall into the same state as RELENG_4 - we won't
prohibit people from continuing to MFC stuff to it but we're expecting
people to lose interest in it fairly quickly and generally encouraging
people to move on to 6.X.  At this point we aren't sure if we'll even
keep doing the monthly snapshots for RELENG_5, we're sort of playing it
by ear at this point (seeing what if anything people do wind up MFC-ing
to it...).  Given I'd need to keep hardware around to do the monthly
snapshot builds on ...
