Maybe.  Do we have a volunteer to check them?  In any case, that
can't be done until there's a release.

That's not the issue -- the issue is that this release will happen
"accidentally".  I know that the upload script is currently
broken.  I'll be fixing stuff, re-running it, fixing more stuff,
and re-running it.  And then all of a sudden, *boomph*, it'll
work.  And then I'll say "hey guys, apparently 2.13.4 is out",
just like I did for 2.13.2.  Basically, I can't predict when it
will happen.

I'm saying that we shouldn't announce it because various parts of
.4 might suck.  Once we've checked it out and maybe made some
changes... and hopefully once I have a reproducible series of
steps for making a release... *then* we'll release .5 and announce

Oh, I'll still be doing 1-2 hours each day at home on my netbook.
It's just that the extra university time should be restricted to 1
