I like your suggestions for time, but some of them make take some more
thinking, so I don't think we should hold up a bug fix release for them.
 Svn is in far better shape than 2.0.6, so we should release.

Nicolas: when do you think you will be able to poke at it for regressions?

Peter, can you produce a beta package?
