I would too if it was feasible, but I don't think it is. We aren't even
close to getting the patches in bugzilla reviewed during the normal
cycle and I don't see people lining up to do review work anywhere :-)

That said, I just went through the release announcements for 2.16.1 and
2.16.2 and I think they look fairly conservative. Mostly crash fixes,
build fixes and other serious issues addressed.
