I'll likely make time tonight to bash through as many of the issues as I 
can tonight. The assumption was that if 1.5.4 was going to happen "now", 
I would be the one who had to do it, hence my quick self-assign. 
Hopefully that was not interpreted as I'm doing it all (I think not 
since Christopher had asked me how he could help too).

I'm not sure why I have to abstain... but I think I've already said my 
peace on the matter. Eric has told me in confidence (that I'm apparently 
going to violate) that he has drafted a number of responses already, but 
hasn't sent them due to being frustrated.

At risk of suggesting that we vote on a vote.. what do you think needs 
to happen now?
