OK,  some updates...

I've done a lot of cleanup, and I think 0.10 is getting ready.  It
would be great if someone could have a look, I've uploaded a tarball,
eggs, rpms and a Windows installer of the release candidate:

Unless a major problem is found, I think we'll be able to cut 0.10
final from this state of the code, and we can then start working on
reviewing all of Brian's work to merge it into the trunk.  We'll  put
up a big warning on the various webpages when that happens though,
since for a while it won't be a very good idea to run daily from
trunk, as the APIs will be in flux (we'll try to make sure that trunk
is always in test-passing state though).

Cheers,
