    AFAIK 5.3 is to be the point where 5.x becomes STABLE, and it would
    not be smart to change the behavior after that. I don't know whether
    there's still enough time for a transitional period.

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
