Travis still sounded hopeful of being able to resolve the 1.7 issues
relatively soon. On the other hand, even if that's done in one month we'll
still miss Debian stable and a 1.6.2 release won't be *that* much work.

Let's go for it I would say.

Aiming for a RC on May 2nd and final release on May 16th would work for me.
