Yes, I agree. Due to the release timing where in reality they are  
concurrent and not "1.6 comes before 2.0" I was never really sure  
where to put things in the various CHANGES.txt files. What I will do  
tonight is go through and remove all items from the HEAD CHANGES.txt  
that are already mentioned in the 1.6 branch and thus act like 1.6  
really came before 2.0. I think I will also tweak HISTORY.txt on the  
trunk to reflect the new ordering.

IMHO the zcml file route is "good enough" as long as something  
explains how to do it, maybe in a README.

So with this in mind, how does 2 weeks from now sound for the beta?
