Obviously risky to continue taking this amount of change a few days
away from the release.
I hope that you and Ryan are careful about testing things.  I'll try
to find some time to read through the changes later.

Here is my proposal: Land these changes now, do a release that we can
push out into distros to get at least some exposure. Then, if you get
the user menu done, we can repeat that procedure tomorrow...
