Hi Odd. Thanks for saying so. And, because I don't believe I've ever
addressed you directly, thanks again for your part in the push parser.

Akim, I hope I'm not coming across as being disagreeable here. It's
absolutely fine by me to extend NEWS in this way. I just want to be fair
to everyone involved, and I'm not sure of the right way to do it.

I realized yesterday that our POT files have changed a little since 2.4.1,
so we probably need to put a 2.4.1a out for about a week. I'll try to
roll that today or tomorrow. I don't think we should postpone 2.4.2 any
longer than that.
