For the record, I never proposed getting a 1.0 release out that had been
scale tested in a few weeks.  Rather, I proposed getting an alpha 1.0
release out in a few weeks.  Bugfix releases from that, after testing,
could then be made.  My claim was that we might sooner get a stable
Apache release that supports append via this route than from trunk.

But, since there is opposition to this proposal, I will abandon it.
