I heartily second that, and offer to test-run whatever changes you do (I 
have a heavy 0.5 slide-show with titles which causes 0.7 do burst in 
flames every time I try to load it on a Pentium 4 machine with 2 GB RAM 
although it does load in 0.5 (but 0.5 has rendering issues with it).

My wife will be home with me as well as the kids, but since she's my 
main "customer" for kdenlive, she'll probably be happy enough to see 
that work is underway for 0.5 import and might even actually *force* me 
to stay near the computer. :)

"Qui ne dit rien consent", do we French say.

I guess I can have a look as an external user who occasionally files a 
bug report. :)
