   Hello,

   So is an incremental release worth it?  Personally, I've no problems
   with just re-spinning the head of the 5.0 branch and calling it 5.0.1
   (with the NEWS file tweeked).

   Beyond that, I've reservations, I'd rather see people putting more
   effort into the trunk and the next major release.

   Opinions?  Give it 2-4 more weeks and then just re-spin what ever is on
   the head and then close the branch?

IMHO, releasing 5.0.1 is only worth the trouble if it fixes the really
annoying problem with rerunning programs with breakpoints in shared libs:

This patch is kind of a stopgap, but I've failed to come up with
something better, and no-one else seems to be interested in solving
this :-(.

Mark
