Sure, but it was left undecided then -- I offer to do a lot of things it
turns out nobody wants <wink>.

Then perhaps I wasn't.  I only deduced it indirectly from one piece of email
that *suggested* it might be the case, buried in a layer or two of quoting.
So I believe it's prudent to make sure everyone who was supposed to get that
email actually did (esp. since I don't believe I did, unless it's hiding in
one of the 100+ new "stability" emails I haven't had time to open yet).

Cool.  Michael has stuck to his release schedule since announcing it, and I
see no reason we can't meet it.
