I'm intending to get a useful subset of Obliterate (it's not a
monolithic feature) done in the first half of this year.

But I'm not relying on getting it into 1.7. I was expecting 1.7 to go
soon, well before obliterate is ready, but if it doesn't go soon then it
might get in. I'm developing it in trunk, taking care not to impact the
rest of the code, and disabled from a user's point of view, so it should
be quite safe to release 1.7 without caring about how far advanced the
obliterate development is.

It's better to get releases out quickly so let's push for 1.7 as soon as
possible.
