No, I'll probably get to it this weekend, so let's shoot for sometime
next week for release.
Note: I'll be reverting the deprecation of some of the %pdef &
friends. There are several tutorials out on the net, widely used in
scientific computing circles, that list these and they do get used. A
minor point release is not a time for any API breakage of this kind.
We'll have a chance for a deep cleanup with the 0.9 series, which
thanks to the great help from Eric Jones and Gael Varoquaux at scipy
is now starting to take shape. There, *everything* will be fair game
for deprecation/cleanup, but there's really no value in breaking
people's work habits right now.
