I'm for a release of stable, but there is still a bug that looks like a
race condition only on Mac OS X that I would like to see fixed on
feature.  There is a consistent failure of the checkout_repository-1
test, but when run via the debugger, the test fails to occur.  Mark
mentioned that it seemed to be dependant on which tests were run before
it as well.

As for hurrying to get patches into a release, that way lies madness.
Or at least hurried & broken code which leads to bugs in releases.  :)

I'll think about a stable release sometime next week if nobody has a
good reason why I shouldn't release it.

I'd really hate to release feature with a known OS X bug, but I don't
have time to figure it out just now and I may consider releasing it with
a warning for users of Darwin & OS.  It'd be good to get out Brian
Murphy's PAM stuff and Mark's BSD-CVS compatibility stuff.  Still, I
don't want feature to get that kind of dirty reputation for bugs and I'd
like to hear some discussion.
