"release" is the most-recent release branch. In this case,
what's the 1.4 branch, which is soon to become 1.4.1.
As before, "current" is the source-code du jour.
When 1.5 starts its release cycle a new 1.5 branch will be forked off
from -current, and the 1.5 branch will become `release'.
It should all be explained in doc/README.sup.
Does it need explaining better, or somewhere more obvious
(like the `getting netbsd') web page?
