This change is the most potentially disruptive one to land in the CMF in
quite a while. Can we get some feedback from those who need the merge
that the branch works reasonably well for them?  And do we have any
writeup about what folks who have been working at or near the tip of the
trunk should expect after such a merge?  We should tag the tip before
the merge, to give those who need stability a place to hide, too.

On that note, I would *greatly* appreciate it if you (Rocky) would
promise not to move the SVN tag for LSM after this point:  the
possibility of chasing down reports which can't be replicated due to
having the same tag point at different actual versions is terrifying to me.

BTW, the Plone practice of bundling all the component products as
'-trunk' has bitten me more than once on this front:  I don't think you
can ask people not directly involved in developing the component pieces
to test something which differs from minute-to-minute.  It is more work
to do "real" release management on the components, but I have found it
very worthwhile.
