Do I understand that this means 5.3 will become the new stable release? 
I heartily support this. I've been using 5.3 for 6 months now on Mac 
OSX. It is stable and, IMHO, a better version than 5.0.3. I realize 
that there have been some problems with other systems. However, Glynn, 
Richard Greenwood, and others seem to have fixed nearly all of these 
for Windows/Cygwin and it seems from the traffic I've followed that 
many (most? all??) of the prior issues with Linnux systems have been 
solved. I think Scott Mitchell will be adding the new I did menus to 
the CVS in a few days.

One question, if this goes from development to 'production', will it 
switch from 5.3 to 5.4?
