I'm hesitant to commit even tests at this point (the release candidate has 
already been released, and there's no plan for a second).  I've not reviewed 
the patches.

Anthony did approve documentation changes for 2.5, so I've committed this for 
2.5 and on the trunk (2.6).  These should be considered for 2.4.4 as well.  
(The other two may be appropriate as well.)
