That's great, Tom. Thanks for stepping up. Given that you're proposing  
rebasing 0.21, what is your preferred strategy? Are you going to pick  
a feature freeze date? Or propose a more httpd-like process where you  
cut the branch and then control what goes in?

Also note that the security work is not done in trunk. That isn't a  
blocker of course, but I don't any one to have unrealistic  
expectations that a rebased 0.21 would include all of the security  
work. (The work is done in our Yahoo 0.20.100 branch that we should  
push to github soon. We will also be forward porting the patches into  
trunk over the next month.)
