It didn't stop the 3.0.3 release, what's the difference with 3.0.4? It's
getting rather frustrating at seeing all these relatively solitary or
edge-case problems derail the entire release process.

I have performed many releases with 3.0.3 and 3.0.4-rcX both, so this is
not a problem for me, and I dare say it's a very large majority of users
that it is also not a problem for.

Stop stopping the presses, please!! It's just a stupid point release! It
doesn't have to solve every existing MNG-* out there! This kind of
localized Chicken Little behavior is making it harder and harder to get
small releases out the door. You're making it worse for all users.
