No, but my recollection is that you're working against stable, and then
Mark mentioned possibly committing changes, so I wanted to go on record
as opposing committing any changes to stable for this, at least at this
time.  The whole point of the stable branch is that it *is* stable --
the only changes are bug fixes (or, with sufficient justification, pure
enhancements that can't break existing functionality).

I understand, but these kinds of changes are what the feature branch is
for, so that's where they belong.

That's open to interpretation/negotiation.  :-)

I haven't been following your progress closely, but from a distance it
looks like you're pretty close to something that could reasonably be
committed to the feature branch.
