I've added those items to the list of "maybe" blocking before
branching. The first one in particular is worth having before,
I think, because we don't want to have people try a pre-release
with a different API, even if that would probably a marginal
portion of people.

The second one is mostly to avoid getting reports of this not working
when we already know. I could mention this as a known issue, but
it looks like we're not far from a resolution, so, might as well

It sounds to me like it would be worth waiting for that testing to be
done before we branch. Say - we could re-evaluate the situation on
March 20th...
