This is wonderful.  I've been making noises about trying to make the 
transition smoother this time, but you and Duncan have done most of the 
hard work.  Not only that, but the process has turned up some bugs that 
hopefully we'll be able to fix in time for the release.  Great stuff, 
thanks guys!
