Yeah, we branched early so that we could focus on getting Cairo
integration hammered out.

I don't use jhbuild, so I would be more comfortable if someone who
does use it made this change. I'd rather not make the change without
being able to test it.

2.13 has gotten a lot of testing, and has come out a lot better than
any previously released version. It has had a good number of bugs
filed against it (and fixed), so it's gotten some testing by people
other than Caleb and myself. I'm quite comfortable proposing it for
inclusion in the 2.14 release and working with whomever to get any
remaining issues ironed out.
