Need to branch documentation for 0.95

SVN trunk is starting to diverge slightly from the state of 0.95; as a result, the statement:

   This covers Django version 0.95 and the development version. Old docs: 0.90, 0.91

at the start of each documentation page is occasionally a little misleading (e.g., new options to django-admin, new settings for the Test system).

We should branch the 0.95 documentation on the website in the same way 0.90 and 0.91 is currently branched.

This is our policy, so I think it should stay as is, for now. The reasoning is twofold: First, we often make improvements to the current documentation, and these improvements are valid for 0.95 users -- so it wouldn't make sense to freeze the 0.95 documentation at time of the 0.95 release. Second, comments should only be available on *one version* of the docs, to prevent confusion, and it makes most sense to allow comments on the most recent docs, rather than docs that might have been corrected in some subsequent version somewhere.
