Hmm, I think that's too long for 1.2.4. I'd really like to reduce the 
number of users who download 1.2.3 and try to use it on a system without 
recent libxml2 support... but we've only gotten one problem report so 
far, so maybe it's not that going to be a big problem. If we start 
getting more problem reports then I'll accelerate 1.2.4 to get them 
taken care of; if not, it can wait 7-8 days.

As far as "finish off the hacker's guide", that's a big project :-)
