Me too.

Changes I'd consider for 1.0[rc2] that weren't in 1.0rc1:

 * The "select child folder" bug fix with multiple Exchange mailboxes.  This
comes close to critical, IMO.
 * Installing the default_bayes_customize.ini file.  This is packaging bug,
so should be included, IMO.

And maybe Skip's fixes for using with Python 2.2.  The rest can
definitely wait.

Alternatively, you could cut it from what it was like at the 1.0rc1 tag.
I'm happy to copy over the various fixes (the ones above, plus Skip's fix
for mboxutils, plus the ones I've commented with 'bugfix').  Your call.

What's the plan with life after 1.0, anyway?   Is 1.1 just for bug fixes and
anything new goes in 2.0?  Or does 1.1 have bug fixes and minor changes, and
anything major goes in 2.0?

What about we pick a deadline date, too?  If I have a deadline, I'm less
likely to get distracted.
