That would be great.  I think most of the problems will show up in
failed builds, some might result in different filelists (pdf file
generated instead of dvi file, but somehow the build does not fail), a
small number might result in wrong fonts being used.

Oh, I guess we'll get some work to do.  But I'd rather see it now than
wait even longer.

Good to hear - then 3.0-5 will build, too.
