I meant, in fact, "ready in and of itself, discounting other packages
with which it has complicated dependency relationships". Assuming that
the licensing bugs are in fact being set aside for now, about which I
have no special knowledge. *shrug*

By "the last day or so", all I mean is that the current version has
reached the end of its grace period. You can check this yourself in the
usual way.
