2.4b1 is planned for this Thursday. I'm taking Wednesday off work to
commit a backlog of patches I want to see in, then plan to cut the
release Thursday. I can probably move this to Friday, if it would
help this get in. I _really_ don't want this landing after b1, tho -
that kinda makes the entire release process pointless if we're landing
stuff that late.

I'm off to sleep now - could Peter or whoever else is likely to do
the work let me know? If it's just a matter of doing the checkin,
and making sure all the fiddly bits are done, you could also point
me at a patch and I'll do it.
