There were only two that said 'wait': yourself and Archaic. Dan voted 
for inclusion, and I thought my vote was pretty apparent since I 
assigned myself the ticket. There was at least one other in the ticket 
that definitely said they hoped for inclusion. Others never said one way 
or another. Yes, it will require some work and testing, but it's nothing 
critical and I don't think it's anything that can't be worked out before 
we release a new stable version.

Also we haven't even cut for testing yet and no package freeze has been 
declared, so development is free for commits. The only thing that's been 
generally agreed upon as far as waiting to update goes is gcc/glibc/make 
and those have been marked as such in Trac.
