That was my idea.

If it turns out to be really impossible, we can still do as Paul suggests, 
but if it works, I would attempt to release 2.8 with dotted units.

In each case, the ground work will be done in a branch, so as not to 
irreversibly damage trunk and destroy Paul's dreams :)

Let's see how well I fare; 2.8.0 is not for next month anyway. 
First get 2.6.4 out of the door.
