That's precisely the plan :)  As long as we're careful not to piss
people off by breaking too many things at the same time, what users
will experience will be the gradual growth of the parallel features
inside a tool they already use for everyday work.  This is something I
was blind enough to overlook for a long time.  Yes, I'm kicking
myself, you don't need to :)

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
