I'm not suppressing any code; it's in the repository. I just don't want
to have it land on master yet. I spend a lot of time getting users
unstuck from their configuration mistakes when they expect that anything
on master should 'just work'. Right now, we're mostly teaching them to
not use our current code base; I'd like to fix that so that we have more
people running master.

Anyone is welcome to pull from the glucose branch if they like; pulling
from 'not master' will give them a good idea of what to expect in terms
of stability.
