No blockers.  I was expecting this and have been cleaning up various
minor things on the issues list.

Good plan. I have every confidence in Daniel, but rushing the new code
into production would be a needless risk.  I'd like to have it
simmering on the test farm machines for a month or so before we ship

I should have ntpviz ready to ship this weekend, so we'll have a nice
tasty feature to brag about in the release notes.

Hal, I think that tells us when we dive into TESTFRAME - right after that.
