I'm trying to finish them as soon as possible, and
I'm trying to keep everything working whilst I'm
doing it.

Unfortunately this is one of those tasks that
simply can't be done in a out-of-tree branch
I don't think. This is why it failed in the past.
It touches too much code so the only way to do
this (IMHO) is to keep everything working whilst
the conversion is going on.

What I'm saying is I think it's safe to merge
from - I'll fix any reported problem (especially
with rare machine/compiler combinations) asap.
