Port-specific problems surely don't prevent feature freezes. I agree that we 
should discuss this at the meeting.

[ I hope nobody expects _me_ to fix this specific problem. I have a conflict 
of interests against fixing the WinCE and OSX ports. ]

That's not a regression from 0.9. If the problem is with the psychology 
of "1.0", we can use 0.10. I am not very optimistic about the browser plugins 
being fixed in any close time frame - I think the real question is why do we 
ship them if we know they don't work, or do we not?

More importantly, there is no point in holding a release onto something for 
which there is no _plans_.
