I agree that an experimental release is fine.
The odd minor version number will tell everybody that it is an
experimental release. A release in that 5.7. line certainly
will be a first step towards a stable release then to be called 5.8.x.

Well it is an experimental development line,
if we clearly say that in the annoucements,
people have no right to be dissappointed.

IMO I don't think src.garden/grass.java/GRASS_libvect.c is worth much effort.

m.in.e00 seems to be worth keeping at a later stage if the effort
of porting is less then adding this to OGR. :)
