I guess I was repeating something from earlier up the thread. However,
given how long this beta has been, we _might_ find very few things
to fix, so the 'double-patch' burden might be small. <finger crossed>
I know there are a lot of people holding patches for 7.3, as well. It
might be good to try to get it opened before the inter-holiday week,
since people often manage to find some free time then.
