For some reason I had it in my head that you usually release -rcs on a
fortnightly cycle. You can safely ignore the 'unusually short' part,
but the remainder still stands and should make sense. The patches in
this set have only had a few days soak test, but I'm hoping my AIAIAI
testing will stand and none of the builds will be adversely effected.
If they are, let me know and I'll fix posthaste.
