Paraphrasing the discussion a bit, it sounds like the only thing in the
way of a release is fixing a bunch of bugs.  It sounds like there are a
couple that are real blockers.  Is that a fair assessment?

If that's the case, I propose the following:

 - Create a 7.9 tracker bug that is blocked by all the blockers.

 - Next week create a 7.9 release branch.  We'll treat it just like the
7.8 branch, but the "settling" period for fixes should be much shorter
(perhaps even instantaneous).

I think both parts are necessary.  The blocker lets us know when we're
done, by consensus.  The branch allows new development to continue
unhindered without jeopardizing the release.  I know there is some
active work that's not GLSL related. :)

Sound like a fair plan?
