Well, I mentioned in the other thread that I am not sure this is
1.5-material anyway. After all, there is not even any code committed
for it. I'd rather not make API changes after we make an RC too, but
are we even convinced a change is forthcoming, and that it does not
bring a new can of worms with it? And, when all is said and done, it
is just more special-casing and more "sugar". So I say we go ahead
with the RC1, and if a change is made that is really compelling to
include in the GA then we consider it. Otherwise it would go in 1.6.
