Well, you've got a point there. However, TNG is being used
in some places (don't know how many) against all warnings
that is indeed not production code. I think that telling
everybody that has been so kind to experiment with TNG and
getting a lot of the bugs out (by reporting them) to just
take a hike is, well, cruel. There is no alternative at
this point (other than MS servers). So what I'm trying to
say is that it would be nice to keep TNG up to date (doing
merges of bugfixes) while the production branch is still
under development.

What were we talking about again? :-)
Seriously: you are right. I guess that everything on every subject is
just bubbling up right now, I should know better and change
the subject line, or I should just shut up.
