Certainly. I just don't see it listed on the release plan for something
we'd want done prior to releasing. That's the only reason I mentioned it.

That sounds reasonable to me. I just want to make sure we discuss it in
case someone else has a particular need for an earlier compat.

Didn't 1.6 have a much larger target feature set? I don't recall if a
formal set of "what do we want in 1.6" plan happened, but IIRC the meeting
notes from the initial video chat discussion had a fairly extensive list.

The obvious blocker is going to be the new API. Probably that work can be
broken up across multiple people though?
