OK, if this stuff is done now, add it and we'll recut the branch. If
it's not done now, save it for M6 (which, IMO, should start to be
rolled together within about one month of the release of M5). My point
is that we need to cut this release and move on. We can't keep holding
up things longer and longer until it's absolutely perfect (I'm
thinking about Matt Hogstrom's message regarding the message we're
sending the community by continuing to waffle). IMO, we need to
continue performing milestone releases until we feel that 1.0 is ready
to go. There's no crime in continuing with milestone releases.
