That's fine with me... though just to eliminate variables, I'd prefer  
if everyone just stuck with paramiko 1.5.2 for now.  Which pains me  
to say cuz I love having instant feedback :)  ... but fluctuations in  
the daily state of the paramiko tree will just end up confusing &  
masking real bugs, IMHO.

I suspect something must've gotten scrambled when merging, but I  
don't think you checked in your merge (bzr.jam doesn't have it) so I  
can't verify it.  Actually a pull of your tree reveals uncommitted  
changes -- is that even possible?  Weird.  I'm gonna blow away that  
branch and pull a fresh copy.

Well, good news and bad news.  The good news is that I get the same  
speedup with a bzr.dev.sftp + bzr.jam monster merge.  The bad news is  
that it has 19 failures and 50 errors.  They're all in non-sftp- 
related code.  Also I had 3 conflicts during the merge (again, none  
related to my changes).  I think if you merge up with bzr.dev first  
you might have better luck, but it looks like the 2 trees have  
diverged too much right now.
