No it wasn't :), or at least not only :). I am realy thinking about that
these days. There are various reasons for that, both technical and political.
I'll send more about it later.

I think, that there is still a lot of time to update s.* modules
(if it is sensible). It may take 2 years to finish 5.1 so that
it may be released as 5.2. For those, who want to use 5.1 for their
work already now, we could add s.* modules to cpbin.conf (make binmix).
The only problem is d.what.sites (R_get_location_* changed).
