I'm sorry... do you really say that you won't implement the context stuff
fully for 1.2?

I had always thought that the work would be finished before 1.2....

I don't expect them to be changed yet. I would have appreciated this
very much, this would probably result in much less work on my side (no
backward-compatibility crap).

If you are about to break the pdb interface we should do it now, not
later.  Doing it later is just awkward, resulting in more work from many
others (update it to 1.2, and then to 1.3 again. Doing the major work once
would be much better).

But AFAICS, there is only one new feature...
