Right, we have to decide which ones get pushed to the TODO list, but
also consider that several obvious bugs got into the 8.4.0 release,
which is something we are going to try to avoid this time.

Perhaps they are now dissuaded.  ;-)

I think once HS and SR are in CVS we could easily be pushed back, but it
seems at least some people are willing to accept that.  The only other
option is to keep them for 8.6 and let them be tested during a full
development cycle.
