What's this rush with releases all of a sudden? 1.3.0 hasn't been out a
month. Our usual schedule was 2--3 months for a patch release.

I disagree about the "few months". Yes, they need to be tested in
production (and also a pool cleanup bug fixed, one which will probably
involve not using pools in the first place, sigh). But these changes
have already been tested a lot more thoroughly than most things that go
into a patch, or even minor, release.

(Just as an example -- when did you last run 9 stress.pl's, three local,
three over svnserve and three over mod_dav_svn, against the same
repository, on a dual-cpu machine, with another shell doing "svn
crashtest" on that repo every second? And without wedging the
repository, I might add.)
