I have one concern about 2.0.32 as a GA candidate.

In order to fix the last of the performance problems
in 2.0.x, we'll need to incorporate free lists for
buckets (the stuff that Cliff is working on).  I'm
assuming that the bucket free list will require API
changes.  If so, then it would be difficult for 3rd
party module maintainers if we announced a 2.0.32 GA
release, with bucket-brigade-based filter support as
one of its major new features relative to 1.3, and then
released 2.0.33 or .34 with API changes to the bucket
code shortly thereafter.
