My thoughts exactly. I was initially wanting to get it in, but it was
to substantial of a change to drop in at the last moment.

+1. The only reason I haven't pushed a release branch is that last
time I did that it kept getting the mainline development pulled into
it (I think accidentally getting rid of mercurial heads). To be clear,
don't let a pending release prevent us from merging stuff into
main--I'll be careful when I make the next RC to make sure it's all
