Actually my question of the state of things was directed at Alex as an 
FMyI and not intended to be a pester or a suggestion that his stuff be 
included in 0.14.3.

Technically (although I don't know if anyone has been fooled into 
believing this) isn't 0.13 the stable thing? 0.14 has several 
developmental features, like the ObjC FFI, native threads, and the IDE.

I would like to see the Hemlock etc. stuff included in some functional 
form and not entirely broken, but I've been sorta eagerly waiting for 
Alex to finish doing whatever he's doing to make the IDE better.

Possibly 0.14.3 should have the current (reasonably functional) IDE in 
it so the release package is in a known kinda-works state, but I would 
like to see even broken stuff from Alex get committed back into CVS 
right after that so I can try it out when I build the bleeding-edge 
head.
