I've set a release date of August 25th.

The one module that needs a lot of work is the character-processing
stuff.  I don't do much of that sort of work myself, so if anyone
could either make recommendations for a desired API, or code it and
submit, I would be most appreciative.

I have created a new list, iteratee at, which would
probably be a better forum for discussion than libraries at
Please subscribe if you're interested in iteratees; we can continue
this discussion there.

Yes.  This may be easy, or not.  The changes are most substantial if
you wrote custom enumerators or did pattern matching on IterGVs.  IMO
the new code is usually cleaner and shorter, but it does take a bit of
work to convert.
