I agree. No more new stuff will go into Jumbo-5. The last week we have 
hammered the formats with pretty academic combinations and/or lengths of 
8-bit candidates (utf-8 or iso-8859-1) and while there are a few minor 
issues that may be addressed at some time, the formats behave as good as 
(often better than) 1.7.7-jumbo1. Many of the bugs that was fixed has 
been there all the time, the test suite and pass_gen.pl has pushed 
testing to a new level.
