Sorry, I was unclear here. I did only intend this for 2.5 -- I usually figure
as soon as I've downloaded the beta, it's too late to consider any new
features. ;) Obviously no patches for 2.5 will go in until after 2.4 is
released (when is this planned for? end of the year?), but I'm not going
anywhere, so I figured I could work ahead a bit. =)
