It's purely a time issue. It's hard to predict in advance how many we
can cover; actually at this point is looks like any that get done will
be done by Owen or by me on the weekends.
So, help would be valuable. We can try to write up a plan.

Owen's hypothesis in the past has been that we can get them all
working without API changes, if we are willing to do a couple bad
hacks. I had earlier posted a list of things I thought probably should
involve API changes if we avoided the hacks.
We aren't considering binding set signals to be an API change.
The deadline is basically "ASAP." ;-)
