I'm not going to hold 2.6.0 up for this, necessarily, but we've been
sitting on the X-Status stuff for a *while* now.  I recall that when I
looked at it, it didn't seem that there was a lot I could personally
usefully do for it.  What does it need, exactly, and who needs to do
it (or do we know)?  Is there anything the rest of us can do to help?
I'd really like to see this go in.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
