I'm planning to do the merge in about 8 hours from now (this evening my
time). However I don't recall there being any code changes to merge from
the 1.6 release branch into HEAD; just a few javadoc changes, a couple
of ant build scripts for the new example code, etc. So there should be
no problems with posting a patch against CVS HEAD now...
