Ahhh - so this patch absolutely fits in the description!

Ack - anything R-T-C'ed into 2.0 already has the blessed stamp
of approval, just takes someone motivated to turn it into a patch.

On the matter of calling a binary distribution 2.0.52, however,
I'm still at odds with tossing in patches - if you do so, I'd
prefer that the binary distribution is clearly named -r2, -patch1,
or some such, to differentiate it from the "released" 2.0.52.

I for one, once all the cache and ldap changes are done, will be
very happy to help release .53, fwiw.
