this weekend I propose to create a branch-1.2 from current branch-1, and
create a first release candidate. There's a ton of new stuff since 1.1,
and it will probably need stabilization, but that is best done in the
context of a release candidate.
Any objections? Any must-have items for 1.2 that can't be in by then?
(There's always 1.3... :-)
