The feeling of Paul, Mike and myself was that this feature should not
take very long to implement if the inherited properties feature does
what it is intended to do. I do not think right now we are waiting
for any one specific feature to land. If it got to the point that we
were just waiting for this, then I would agree with you. Right now,
it does not seem like it will be a problem to get this done before we
branch.
