Yeah I heard about the performance issues, so we'll need to verify and
track that.  If that's the only issue I think we could still proceed
with merging it into Karmic, unless the performance regression were
particularly severe.

Okay, well I'm running the new -ati stack (but on -intel) and it seems
fine.  We're putting it on a usb stick and handing it around to some of
the engineers here at the karmic sprint to test.  Assuming that goes
well, I'll upload these bits and pieces for Alpha-4.
