No, it just takes someone motivated.  I hated the thought of 2.0.51
sitting around so I did something about it :)

At the same time, there is ***massive*** progress on mod_cache!  If the
mod_cache folks think we are ready to roll (and they are getting close)
then another release for all these 'experimental' improvements can't
be very far off.

Anyone can RM, it takes 3 +1's and no -1's to release, actually I think
beyond 3 +1's it's simple majority rules.
