Seems to be the case for everyone. I think it is enough to say the next guy
with free time will make an upload to experimental, and i guess if we all
agree on that, it will happen.

Well, it will move things forward, right now i think we mostly don't know for
sure about the issues, so experimental is a good place to upload things even
for us to test internally. If nothing else it will create a reference 2.6.13
