hmm.. that's unfortunate... anything we need to update so this doesn't 
happen again? or just a matter of lesson learned, let's keep an eye out 
next time?

i guess the question is can users wait (a month?) for next release? i'm 
willing to poll operator list (or any list) to query for demand if 
that's easier on your end? if there's very little interest we can defer 
-- i do have a few patches lined up for next kilo release window so i 
would expect another release.
