Thanks for fixing them. The release branch seems to be in good shape for a
final beta release now.

On a related note, the current master looks more like a 0.17 to me than a
0.16.1 when I compare it to the current release branch. We could just wait
for a couple of weeks to collect bugs in 0.16 from user reports (and
features as they come in), and then push out a 0.17. I hope the pending
PyPy changes will also be ready enough for a release by then, that would
round up the feature list quite nicely.
