Yes I think all agree 1.4 is out of the picture everywhere and I agree 
small devices are getting bigger.

One other thing that we might want to consider as a development 
community  and  something that we havealways been pretty good about, is 
that we try to keep refactoring and syntax changes separate from 
behavior changes to facilitate ease of review of patches, backporting 
and tracking down regressions.  I wonder if it makes sense to defer any 
heavy duty reorganization until after 10.8.2 so it doesn't interfere 
with backporting efforts for the fall release.
