I forgot to say in the last mail that what is currently stable-queue
will very soon become 0.9.22... just depends on how heavy a stick I can
find to bash Lennart with :D He did say he'd do it before Plumbers, but
that didn't quite happen.... Fingers crossed he's updated his "soon"
definitions to v2.0 as his v1.0 definition of "soon" seems to take a
long time to complete... :p (joke)
