Well, that is precisely why releases are supposed to be as non-obtrusive
as possible to the mainline development. Because you know what? You
don't have to wait to be the next one. You can do a *concurrent* release
with what Diego is doing as long as it doesn't hinder the development
progress. Releases are *services* to the community. As such, they
are subject to the very same Darwinian principles as the rest of the
services: e.g. we didn't like sourceforge we moved on. 


P.S. This will be my last email in this thread, I promise. I need to
fix DV on ppc, after all ;-)
