Okay, understood.  I'll adjust our development schedule accordingly.
I'm pretty sure I can use the headers exchange implementation in order
to implement a "poor man's prioritization" capability, anyway.

Okay, I'll let you know how testing goes.

Interesting.  So is this your usual development cycle -- reserving
1.even_number == beta and 1.odd_number == stable? (similar to Linux
kernel release versions?)  Just curious.
