All of this, yes. :)

This would be nice.

The above are pretty much the requirements for other binaries. Of course, I expect (hope?) that the community will take each release candidate and test their own code with it.

I do too. The progress you're making is great!

I agree. Though I'll also let Jim and Evan chime in on what they think.

Thank you!
