After most of a month (yes, I know that's not all that long), as I
upgrade Mumble from pkgng to portmaster install to avoid having Qt
binary package libs destroy X11 functionality with KMS again and watch
the process destroy my browser instead, I wonder . . .

Do you have any estimate on how many months Real Soon Now might mean?  I
swear I won't hold you to a deadline; I would rather it be done right
than done quickly.  I'm just interested in having something like an
order-of-magnitude guesstimate for how far in the future Real Soon Now
will happen.
