I should have, sorry for this.

Nice to hear that! I was talking with one of the upstreams a couple of
months ago, and back then there were still quite a lot of problems.

This needs input from the ARM team, I CC'ed some of them.

No, it doesn't, you'd need to reimport your library if you want to
switch (you aren't forced to, as the upgrade wouldn't remove Banshee).

Thanks for the heads-up, it's great to see that many of these concerns
are being addressed already.
