Good. You made 5.6.1 so quickly that I didn't have time to react and
say that it makes little sense without the 802.11 fix, but you're
obviously making 5.6.2 quickly, so..

That was just horrible timing. David's email to say "holup" came in
literally _one_ minute after I had sent the 5.6 announcement: my
timestamps for that unfortunate thing is "3:51 PM" for my 5.6
announcement, and the email where David says "Meanwhile, we have a
wireless regression, and I'll get the fix for that to you by the end
of today" has a timestamp of "3:52 PM"

(Ok, so me actually tagging the tree and pushing it out happened about
half an hour earlier, so it's not like it was quite that close, but I
found the timing of the almost-crossed emails to be funny/sad).
