as you might have noticed, but I didn't veto the change either. but the 
fact that 6.0.14 has a pretty serious bug in the Comet related code, 
that after a comet request has ended also breaks regular HTTP requests, 
would call for another release fairly shortly, large changes like this, 
do have a tendency to delay such releases, as we now need a lot more 
testing and feedback to vote it stable
