I think I digressed in my rationale for waiting in my last mail.  I agree 
that the patch is good, and I can follow what you are doing with the various 
parts -- _but_ I don't understand them all well enough to port them to MLB 
with confidence.  I am absolutely commited to minimising the divergence 
between HEAD and MLB, and want to be sure that all commits happen in parallel.

Thanks, that helps.

I really don't want to hold up the 1.4 release any longer, so I have a bit of 
a conflict of interests here =(O|  How about this:  I'll commit the parts of 
your patch that I can confidently port to MLB before I roll the release in a 
few hours.  I'll leave anything that I miss for you to commit to branch-1-4 
and HEAD after the 1.4 release and initial MLB merge.

I fully expect to release 1.4.1 within a few weeks with whatever fixes are 
instigated by the inevitable extra testing that follows a full release.  So 
any additional ILD (or other!) work you do after the release won't be left to 
languish in CVS for very long (like we seem to have allowed with ILD).
