We should NOT be waiting for pin-externals. It's lovely, but it's a last-minute mini-feature addition and, as such, it doesn't need to block 1.9.0: if it's ready, we ship it, if not, we remove it or ship it with bugs.

On the scale of release-blocker concerns for 1.9 these are trivial -- we shouldn't be holding up the release for them.
Issue #4556: Let's remove 'svn youngest' right away, and a replacement UI can be pushed into 1.9.0 if it's ready in time, or not if it's not. The UI is a nice-to-have, not a hard requirement.
Issue #4560: That's surely an acceptable task to be addressed during release stabilization.

There are 19 defects currently tagged 1.9.0-consider. I'll go through these now and see if any are potential blockers, but they *shouldn't* be, if they have the "-consider" tag.
Let's not hold up long for this, either.
