Your inclination seems to me to be the best course.  In fact, I would go
so far as to say that its SOP at many shops:  create a branch for a stable
release that will take patches for that release, and nothing else, while
letting development continue on the main branch.  The problems occur when
you have two development branches, as my company has had for the past year ;-(.
