[etc., etc.]

This follows on from the fairly recent 9.6.0a1. Both 9.4.0 and 9.5.0 went
all the way to a6 before the first beta release, so this was a bit of
a surprise. Does it mean ISC are particularly confident of 9.6.0*'s
robustness? Or just that "no-one starts testing until it is called beta"?
