Yes, I listed it just to keep it on the radar.

We should generate a list of subitems here.

Can we create table/sequence dependency linking on loads; same with
other dependencies? If not, we are going to have trouble with the
dependency code only working some times. This could be a serious
confusion for users. We coded some of our stuff assuming the linkage
will always be present, but a load from 7.2 may not have it. What are

I have proposed a fix of placing a fixed mktime earlier in the link line
but no one has supplied a fixed mktime for me.

I have great confidence Manfred Koizar and his work. I know you want
some checks added to the code and he will do that when he returns. I
will mention this in the open items list.
improve macros in new tuple header code

fix implicit type coercions that are worse

I believe it is only the interfaces/ssl directory I created from his
patch when I didn't know what to do with it. I wanted to remove it but
someone said it was good stuff and we should give the author until beta
to address it. Added to TODO:
remove interfaces/ssl if not improved

integrate or remove new libpqxx
