Which seems awfully close to the things to do for 2.0.  Sigh.  I'm just
concerned about loosing a focus; it took long enough to get 1.2 out when
everyone was working on the one branch.  Now we have the potential for
three branches.

OTOH, the process of getting the NT version working could help by
fixing up a lot of code changes in modules, etc. to make them work
with threads.  For the most part, the same changes are needed
however multithreading is implemented.

Are there any reasons, other than the very significant one of how
long it will take to get 2.0 out, to not just incorporate NT into
2.0 and skip 1.3?  It seems to me that would avoid a lot of duplication
of effort; unfortunately, it would delay the NT release a lot.
