I have a couple of things in progress (the KS test / distribution
issue, making EmpiricalDistribution implement the distribution
interface) that could wait if everything else is ready.  All that is
*required* is that we resolve or push out all issues marked as 3.1. 
We can always follow with 3.2 or 3.1.1 soon, so I see no harm to
getting this out quickly.  I have been working on the stat package
throws stuff.  If I can have the weekend to finish, I could finish
that; otherwise we release with this issue partly done (which is OK
by me, as long as we push out the ticket).
