Anyway. I think this thread needs input from people who actually have a clue about it. Say Thiago or George Staikos or anyone else familiar with the previous implementation.

Ok, My personal opinion is that I would love to have the code (I can use it out of the box in Mailody), but we are in RC2 currently and the next planned released is the 4.0.0 one at this moment. It's simply to late. Or we should insert at least another RC.

The release team is also waiting on some input on this from Thiago, but he has not had time to respond. If Thiago tells us it's perfect code, I think that will have a great influence on the opinion.
