Will second it ... Vadim is supposed to be back on the 6th, and Peter has
a couple of changes to configure he wants to do this weekend for the JDBC
stuff ... Thomas and I are in SF the end of next week for some meetings,

assuming that Vadim doesn't get caught up by then, we can bring them up
"in person" at that time ... ?
