I think we have a little less than a week before we cut the beta2. If you
can do the job (code, reference doc and junit changes) in this timeframe,
it's more than welcome! Otherwise a comment on IVY-399 summing up the
changes would help, and I'll try to find some time to do the change,
probably early next week during my next trip to visit a customer.
