Thanks *so* much for the clarity here. This greatly helps.

The only thing that is a concern about testing of 1.6 clients against 
the newer release. Are you signing up to do said testing? If you fall 
off a bridge/get sick/etc, I don't want all newer releases to be blocked 
until another community member volunteers or you are free to work on it. 
Is that reasonable?
