There's a few in my inbox, but I'm away from the computer with my
inbox at the moment. I'll have a look on Monday, but I think there's
only one really important issue I am aware of:

It's at the top of my "free time" TODO list, but I don't forsee any
"free time" soon.

Yes, that merge caused the breakage.

I haven't had a chance to look at it in detail yet. I suspect it is
fixable without Evgeny's proposal, but I really like the idea of
explicit padding everywhere. If it's ready to go, I'd be overjoyed to
see explicit padding instead of kludging the unwritten padding
