I do!  But I fear I might forget my umbrella the next time I travel out of my
home location. :)

That's a good point.  Given that as a fresh install, it's currently pretty

this decision so close to the release.  Isn't there a chance that someone will
be motivated to do an SRU to fix the most egregious problems later?
