Hi Ben,

Progress is stalled on a rewrite of DPH's use of TH since TH is no
longer available in stage1. There is no reason this can't be worked
around, just that it's more work than I initially expected.

I agree that it would be good to get this taken care of soon, but that
is generically true of almost all things :) I was planning on getting
this done for 8.2. If there is a reason for more urgency, let's discuss.
