  I was wondering when someone would ask that. :-)

  I think that the post-lenny branch is probably a better place to work
for now.  Maybe this weekend I'll merge it into HEAD and shut that
branch down.  That will mean no more (easy) upstream releases from the
current stable branch, but it'll also be easier to have all the work
happening in one place.

  I tried merging head into post-lenny, but the translation merge
looked scary -- I didn't know which branch had important work, or if
they both did.  Probably safer if I leave it to you.
