Context - Rob and I just tracked down the last fd leak, meaning the 
problems we were having (at least on BSDI) with too many open fd's is fixed.
Other issues remain until 0.7.x is to be made public:

returned) workable/acceptible?

it out...

Okay.  I can't think of any other feature enhancements we should do 
before a public release of 0.7 other than the ones discussed above.
