Relative to the client contract - Merlin is rock solid.

As far as commit messages are concerned, please take into consideration 
(a) commits on implementation improvements, (b) commits related to 
sub-system relocation (i.e. system moving out of merlin and into avalon 
space such as avalon-meta, avalon-utilities, and avalon-repository and 
the resulting refactoring withing the merlin system implementation), and 
(c) commits on the 3.4 branch which deal with meta-model optimization 
and do not impact the client contract.

Cheers, Stephen.
