Guys.. is there any reason why this needs to be rushed in over the Christmas
break? Getting it in the tree, fine. But making USB2 the default so
quickly does not appear to be proper engineering procedure.
The days that CURRENT was broken for long periods is not something the
project wants to get back to. The discussions sofar do not make me believe
this will be a smooth transition, it seems it will need testing and fixing for
a reasonable (considerable?) period.
speaking for myself this time
