I'm really psyched to see this go into the 3.3 code line, kudos to Henry 
and the rest of the team in getting this landed!


ps. gentle reminder - the user list is primarily for answering user 
questions on released software, many users don't follow future 
developments and can be confused as to what's current and what's future. 
(this comes from apache -> me -> you) I'd encourage all of you that are 
interested in things like Observers to follow the dev list, it would be 
great if you all could try out the Observers feature (and the other 
features that we are working on for 3.3.0) in the current trunk and 
provide early feedback via the dev list. Thank you.
