By "ready" I don't mean perfect, as a glance at my changelog since 4.0.1-1
will reveal.  I wanted packages that:

  1) had stabilized in their layout (number of packages, their names, and
     contents) so that the package relationship control data didn't stretch
     into the gigabytes
  2) were stable enough that I didn't have wankers filing hundreds upon
     hundreds of redundant bugs in an onanistic frenzy everytime I made some
     little slip-up

     You know, kinda like the way I went nuclear on Wichert when he broke vim.
