It isn't dead and we've had patches that have been on the branch for a  
long time. It was just that no one had decided to make it. After  
seeing more people using 0.20.2, I decided to get that release out. I  
should have posted to the dev list first, but the branch seemed very  
quiet so I didn't think it was a big deal, sorry about that.

I *didn't* revert the change. I just moved the description in  
CHANGES.txt to 0.20.4 since the change went in after the 0.20.3rc0  
tag. In fact, I have since found a bug in 0.20.3rc0 and so I will  
include h-1734 in the 0.20.3rc1.

To prevent future race conditions, let me formally be the RM for  
0.20.3. Please check with me before any commits to the 0.20 branch.
