Let's just call the branch RELEASE_x_y and have some form of tagging
for the release branch point. That should be enough for source users.

For image names, something like is patch level would be perfect.
E.g. DragonFly-1.2.iso as name of the release image and DragonFly-1.2p1.iso
after the first patch has been applied. That allows a user to keep track
of what she has.
