Anothony, have you an updated version of this patch? How much testing
has it had?

Should we be looking to get it in prior to 3.0.2? In principle I think
this would be a good thing, but we may have left it too late. I expect
2.6.16 final will be out fairly soon, and then we'll want to be pushing
a release out in the following week or so.
