Well I took 22nd as release as I wanted to bring it as
Christmas-present and I didn't want to spend too much time over
Christmas (I'm also not at home for 2 or 3 days), so if it's necessary
to delay, then we may do it, but when perhaps 1.6.0 will be released
next year.

For the 1st issue there is already a patch, for the second
it's mainly a conflict of *personal* preference, Timos pp has been
commited, but Dereks is a different, mine is somewhere in the middle,
so it's very difficult what to do, as the discussion is mostly not
rational. Plus it mostly applies only for enter-exit mode and a version
with old behaviour is on the ML, which can be posted to the wiki, too.

So at the moment I don't see a reason for delay. Yet.

Well, it will require librep 0.90.4, which is not yet released, but
since it's just a RC I'll release it anyway.
