deeper thought, or are dependent on other changes yet to be

state and continue working on them:

These all need additional review besides myself.  To be doubly certain
I'd like them to have at least two Reviewed-By's by Friday (tomorrow)
before further consideration for landing.

Friday I'll wrap up the second release candidate.  From then until the
release my plan is to only land critical bug fixes.  If you feel one of
the above patches qualifies as 'critical' or otherwise really deserves
inclusion in 1.7, contact me off list and we'll ensure it gets
