Branch news

Just wanted to give everyone an update on the branch. MF branched last week (MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH) and I've set up a tinderbox to monitor it (binus) and we'll be making both trunk and branch nightly builds each morning.

Obviously our focus is the branch, but we need to make sure that big landings on the trunk don't cause regressions that will languish for months before anyone gets to filing bugs. It also means that check-ins from now on will have to be on both branches. Yes, it's annoying, but it's how stable releases work.
