Yeah, so, that has been a bit of a problem with the current feature freeze.
Either it's unfixable because everyone is going to rush changes in before
the freeze (I cannot believe the amount of hacking going on over this w/e,
it's incredible), or we should ask for changes further down the stack to be
proposed as early as possible.

Tough one, but we'll cope for now. :-) I don't think libsnot [1] will be a

[ Just a thought: perhaps these proposed modules could include patches for
the changes above them in the stack, so they're easily puntable if no one
wants them. Probably too much work for too little gain. ]
