I think there is some dayling saving time switching going on, 
in Europe at least.  So is the meeting actually going to 
be 2pm GMT+1 or 2pm GMT+2?  I guess it's going to be GMT+1, right?

ok, i still think that we need some clear objectives to be
stated on pypy-dev for 0.8.0: properly integrated and reasonably 
fixed _and documented_ compiler package and more speed, as far
as i see. Also the "thunk" object space, allowing for
transparent "object morphing" and lazily computed objects will
become translateable which basically presents the first thing
that PyPy does that you can't do in CPython as transparently. 
Please correct/amend me if neccessary. 

If we are really pushing out 0.8.0 this fast, i suggest that 
we at least not put _any_ more features into the release goal 
set.  This has been the general opinion of the pypy-sync meeting
but i think it makes sense to state it here as well.  And let's
not worry about speed too much (hi martijn! :).
