Depends on the time between 2 and 3... here is my personal prio order: 1. New md5-gen w/ plumbing changes. This is *the* most important and will make life easier for everyone. 2. MPI - it's ifdef'ed and ready, it simply can't break stuff unless enabled. 3. Intrinsics (if/when ready) 4. UTF-8 (I'm currently looking at the few UTF-8 fixes for moving loader stuff to prepare()) 5. All formats currently on wiki (unless they break things) I can live with *only* getting md5-gen w/ "plumbing" in a Jumbo2 and the rest in Jumbo3, but it would be a relief for me getting MPI in there and that code will not change much (if at all) in the future. The MPI code is completely unaffected by the format changes and stuff. It does merge with Jim's stuff without a problem. Then, we can rebase the other patches to Jumbo-2 and pretty quickly come up with a Jumbo-3 (with us doing more of the work than you). I really want the UTF-8 stuff into a Jumbo because it includes stuff that others can use for supporting UTF-8 in the future. The intrinsics patches are so important for performance that they should IMO trigger a new Jumbo themselves, whenever they are ready! Just my €0.02 magnum
