None of my items should be considered as a blocker for a release. 

Maintaining the experimental branch alongside trunk has been a bit of a pain. The locking
was never ported to it. Now that the Java 5 refactoring has been done to trunk I'm really
not sure what value there is in the experimental branch.  If we were to head off in a 2.0
the way I'd like to see it go I wouldn't want to have 3 branches, and the experimental branch
doesn't make the fundamental changes I'd really like to see.
