Yikes, a pentium M is going to take ages... but I'm not feeling
too great about dev/staging getting so diverged from master.  If
you could do the merge/rebase magic and make sure that the result
can compile the documentation from scratch, then please push the
dev/staging+master merge.

Even better would be if you used the script for it,

which basically just automates the step I outlined.  I've used it
2 or 3 times without problems, but no guarantees.  It would be
great to have more testing + bugfixing on it, but if you're more
comfortable doing it manually, then let's do that for this
"emergency" dev/staging merge.

Let's not worry about new patches for another 24 hours or so.

oh, I know that I'm lucky; it could be much, much worse.  It could
also be better, though.  And I don't feel lucky; I just feel
