Errr, if I in my role as RM decide that a change doesn't go in I usually
have a good reason for that.  This, however, doesn't translate to an
implicit vote against the change in 2.0.

I didn't include the auth changes because I tagged STRIKER_2_0_41_PRE1
_before_ the auth changes were committed.

In the release cycle I didn't decide to include the shiny new code

 - the docs weren't complete;
 - the code was so new that I wasn't comfortable with it yet.

FYI, it was possible that the tree was left in a 'broken' state for a while
due to the aaa changes, and that's why we decided to move forward and
release 2.0.41 (which turned into 2.0.42).  Simply not to have our
users wait longer on the bugfixes that were already present.

My vote to keep the aaa changes in 2.0 still stands.

Will you consider the concerns of others regarding branching aswell?  I've
seen a lot more people voicing concerns in that area than in keeping the
aaa changes in 2.0.
