The problem, from where I sit, is that I'd started rebasing my stuff on top of
Willy's patches and making use of them in the expectation that they were
likely to go in - and I think other people might have been doing that too
based on some of the comments.

However, that's all been thrown up in the air. Not only did they not get
merged in this window, it's not currently looking certain that they'd get
merged in the next window either.

So what do I do? Do I defoliate my patches - which then risks merge conflicts
with the folio patches? Or do I stick with the foliation and hope that
Willy's goes in next time?

Some guidance as to what's likely to happen to the folio patches would be
really appreciated!
