Point taken. Unless there are objections I'll delete the 0.22-fixes
branch tonight and recreate it at a later date, there are only a
couple extra patches in trunk so far. I remember getting annoyed
back when I didn't monitor IRC and big decisions got made there
without any notification made here.

This touches on something else that should have been discussed here.
In IRC we had talked about doing a pre-release on or about Sept 7th.
This didn't happen because of some delays on the unfrozen bits and
my intention was to do prepare that pre-release today from the new
branch. It would be better to not slip from a September release so
we should just announce trunk is ready for heavy testing? It looks
like a lot of new bug reports were filed overnight...

If there was discussion I missed it, but my assumption was always that
0.22-plus would have a frozen DB schema.
