Thanks for the fair warning.  Now don't do it.  Has core approved
this?  I don't think so, I've seen nothign from them about it.

The instability ni -current for MONTHS is pain not acceptible.  We've
never really allowed that in the past.  A CVS branch would be mcuh
better for this sort of thing.  I know that's a pain as well, but this 
is just for SMP people and the rest of us shouldn't have to deal with
the pain.

I understand your desire to have it all in a working tree, but causing
pain for ALL developers for potentially MONTHS isn't a reasonable
