I've not yet looked at the the stuff that's currently been merged for
1.6.7, but there are several items in STATUS that are worth a
release. I'm hesitant to do one *too* quickly (<4 weeks), but I'm
happy to cut a release in the next few weeks if the demand is there,
and it sounds like it is.

As usual, the roadblock for getting stuff into the release is the
review needed in STATUS. Please take some time to take a look.
