Since geom_vinum wasn't in the earlier betas I expected it was
scheduled for after 5.3-RELEASE. I'm puzzled by the amount of
feature changes during the current beta process. Bind 9 is
another example. Shouldn't there be a feature freeze at the
first beta and only bug fixing until release?

OTOH geom_vinum is definitely good news. I'll give it a try
right now and report the results.
