I think you're right, its probably time to converge the current code
to a new stable version as soon as possible.
It hasn't reached the goals I'd set for the 1.8 release, as a result of
the lack of time [and energy] due to my home construction project.
Fortunately that will be drawing to a close in the next few months, and
I should be able to resume the pace at that time.
In the meantime, I do believe you're right, and that its worth it to
focus on converging the current code into a releasable state, wrap up
a few loose ends, and get it into shape for the 1.8 release.
