We have not spoken up because we thought the matter was settled: 2.44

Last cycle was a little too long, but understandable with all the
new features and the accompanying coding & testing.  It will take a
bit of time for users to put the new feats thru their paces and
find bugs.  Given that, I think a reasonable set of targets for
a short cycle are

1) 64 bit
2) latest python 2.5 for all capable platforms
3) bug fixes for new features.
4) patch tracker cleanup

Design work for event refactor can run in parallel to this, if
anyone is bored.

Consider this a vote for a 2.44 release.
