Thanks for the concern.  We're not exactly comfortable either.

We had some of the same questions for the last couple weeks.  After 
testing finished their work we now know where we stand.  Like you said, 
the system is not grandma ready, but it is faster.  There are a few 
items here and there that were looked into following the release to 
testing (2008.12.2), so hopefully we can upload soon, definitely within 
this year :)  Most of us who are left have just been too busy with the 
next major Milestone in 2009, also known as paroli:

Do look forward to that and thanks everyone for being patent.
