I discussed this with Phillip a bit, and it looks like we'll go for a
2.6.21 merge. This gives a couple of months for testing and review in

Of course, this assumes that someone will actually perform that testing
and review. Chances are that it'll just sit there, getting nothing more
than compilation testing.

Apparently I reviewed the code a while back - that grey cell must have
died. Does anyone else intend to review the code in that timeframe?
If not, we might as well merge it now, if ever..
