It's been TWO MONTHS if not more that we have well-published public exploits 
and unreleased fixes in the 0.8.6-branch... What is going on???

If <release-manager> is waiting for a browser plugins fix, I think it's safe 
to say, especially at this point, that it is NOT going to happen within 0.8.6 
as it either involves too large changes, or crippling the plugins badly 
(removing any kind of option). In other words, you had better not f*****g 
install the plugins on your computers. Many people are concerned with the 
media players, not the plugins.

Also, this is really really really bad vis-à-vis the security-minded 
open-source communities and Linu/BSD distros.

If nothing happens quickly, I'm going to make a source only 0.8.6e release and 
voilà. Nevermind those poor folks who get their binaries directly from
