Matt almost jumped on this one right away. To avoid any collisions
perhaps don't tackle the support for the environment at the moment.

Having said that, there might be a gazillion of bugs lurking we don't
know about until we've switched our dogfood jobs to restraint. Once we
have a better picture, I'm sure we're very happy to receive some help to
get them closed quickly. I know Bill has already provided a few patches
for recently reported bugs, which was very helpful.  So I'm suggesting,
please hold up a bit and I'll reach out asking for help. Otherwise it'll
be a shame if we would collide fixing the same bug.
