Because it's also got a large regex rewrite that they're still finding
bugs and leaks in. So we'd be trying to cope with that at the same
time. I wouldn't mind so much if we actually had a version in testing,
but we don't seem to.
The arm bug isn't fixed in CVS - It's a toolchain problem that I'll work
around with a local hack to disable combreloc. HPPA hasn't submitted
yet. Last I heard ia64's patch wasn't in CVS yet, and I have no idea
what's up with Sparc. So it doesn't seem like post of the arch bugs are
in CVS right now. I hope we can change that, though.
Let's see how necessary it is. We can always do a CVS pull after this
