Good answer. As it stands right now, Abdera2 is very close to being
done. I'll be working on shoring up test cases and documentation later
this week. I'm still waiting on a response to the post I made on the
developer list about making Abdera2 the trunk, however, so I'm hoping
that administrative and process delays won't push out the completion
