Things we need to do before an alpha:

- new bugdb. A couple of people have talked about installing Bugzilla
  on locus. If they don't have the time, I'm willing to give it a
  shot. There are a few people at work who can help me figure it out.

Things I'd like to see done before an alpha

- Eliminate the old configuration system, and move the new one down a
  level, so that we aren't even more confusing than 1.3 and cding into
  src isn't required to build 

- Fix the stupid chunking bug. I'd like to fix this before
  the alpha release because I imagine that 3rd-party module developers
  will start porting their work to 2.0 once they see an alpha, and I'd
  like to give them a fighting chance.

- Finish the module hook porting. We still have entries in the module
  table that ought to be hookified.

I can work on all of these, though I'd rather someone else did some of
it. :)
