Because apache-2.0 is a long-lived version, and this will help builders
for many, many months to come...

We can and should...

Agreed.  It's good to discover problems on the sandbox before we move
them into stable.  A couple (or three) days is probably good to let most
folks' autobuilds chew on cvs HEAD and discover new problems.

So I like the philosophy of Fred's patches for 2.0 as well, but it would 
be good to iron them out in the sandbox before they are backported.
