I have a concern, but it isn't an objection, it is a concern.  Roy, I
trust your judgement, but you have not been very active in the code, and
there have been multiple messages from you concerning how little time you
have.  I would much rather not have you as a limiting factor to get a
release done, especially since you are not intimatelyt familiar with the
code right now.  I would rather see a detailed outline, and the work can
then fall to anybody.

Just some thoughts.
