I also feel that there are enough new features to warrant a new
feature release fairly soon. It is really too bad that Grant/Revoke is
not ready yet, because that would have been a valuable addition to
such a release.

I also thought this schedule looked reasonable, but the feedback seems
to indicate that others disagree, which is too bad... 

I can understand that this comes close to 10.1.3, but I really think
we need a release from trunk soon. In addition to getting new features
out to non-snapshot users, it could also cut down on the
need to merge so many fixes to the 10.1 branch. It seems like the
difference between 10.1 and trunk is already creating hairy merge issues...
