Agreed. I wasn't trying to be flippant (but probably came off that way).

I don't claim that we should disregard the problem. I *do* claim that
we should more widely publicize blocking issues so that everybody can
be aware of them.

The greater point was that this seems to be something that various
people have kicking around in their heads. We agreed in Berlin (and
then discussed on this list) to use the issue tracker to record
blocking issues. I really don't want to be in the position of rolling
a possible release candidate, only to find out we're got all these
hidden issues that aren't being tracked in the agreed-upon public
manner.
