	Please don't do this.  0.23 is a MASSIVE change.  Introducing even more instability in the
form of a new major feature in the middle of a release that is bound to be full of problems
is not a good idea.   Anyone who runs a production system will basically ignore 0.23 because
it simply won't be stable enough.  (It *always* takes a .1 or .2 or even a .3 before things
are actually rock solid.)

	I'd much rather see 0.24 have HA than 0.23.
