Whew, Jay I thought you were advocating major changes in Cactus.  That
would completely mess up my view of the world :)


It was discussed at ODS, but I have not seen any code or momentum, to date.

I think it is worth while to have an open discussion about what if any
of this can be safely done in Cactus.  I like you, Jay, feel a bit
conservative.  I think we lost focus of the reason we chose time based
releases. It is time to focus on nova being a solid trustworthy
platform.  Features land when they are of sufficient quality, releases
contain only the features that passed muster.

I will be sending an email about the focus and theme of Cactus in a
little while.
