For my part, I'm still finding (and having people point out to me)
nits in the current web2c code (Staszek found a couple that would have
been showstoppers), which is why I'm doing the occasional checkin, and
haven't done the formal release yet.  Right now I'm arguing with
Fabrice about the code that allows spaces in "-quoted filenames (as
the windows corner is pushing that hardest).

That's the main part of what's kept me from going into a complete
source freeze on the web2c part.  It looks to me like the big changes
I put in have had some shakedown now, but I'd like to see more reports
from testing, for which (I assume) we need binaries to be built.

Is the lack of formal source freeze for web2c holding up testing or
other things?
