I think the criteria for 1.0.x patches is the same as for 0.8.x patches - they
must be bug fixes and not features. I think every bug fix should be considered
as a candidate for 1.0.x, and only left out if it doesn't work. Leaving them
to drift until they bite someone badly will just cause even more 1.0.x
versions, not less. I think the "show-stopper" only policy is misguided.

So, I have additional votes (to be used if further voting is in order, which,
if we are to avoid an instant 1.0.2, it must surely be):

23.mmap					-1
	This is a feature. If it is considered to be a bugfix for the deletion
	of the scoreboard, it doesn't work (SCO 3 doesn't have mmap).
57a.recurse				0
58.initgroups				+1
59.scoreboard_race			+1
60.licence_typo				+1
61.preserve_redirected_query		+1
62.escape_html				0
63.unixware				+1
64.auth_type				+1
67.setrlimit_define_for_sunos		+1

As before, if the 0s need votes I will test them.
