I uploaded a new version of tbb a little over a week ago, but I am
concerned because it is currently in NEW.  It does not meet any of the
exception requirements, but it is a new upstream release.  The package
is passing through NEW again because with the new upstream release Intel
introduced doxygen documentation for the library, which I thought it was
best to place into a seperate binary pacakge because of its size.

I'd like to request a freeze excpetion based on the following:

 - relatively low popcon count (50; few users affected)
 - the packages have been tested by the primary users (Athena Captial
   Research) without reported issues
 - tbb has no r-deps (except for amongst its own binary packages)
 - The package has a history of being relatively bug free

The version is 2.1~20080605-1.
