That sounds like a good idea. Compartmentalizing tasks, and then getting the
low hanging fruit sounds very reasonable for a near branch date. For both tree
conflicts and other pending stuff, let's figure out what we can deliver here and
now, and then work on getting that stuff up to quality.

This may sound like a broken record at this point, but let's not repeat the 1.5
mistake of creating a release which had too much too late (and arguably too many
bugs).
