Hi Jeff, I know it's important to you, but I would be pretty surprised
if you could interest anyone else with a 2.2 bug. :) You may want to
bring that to your management's attention: by continuing with 2.2,
you'll get little community support, which would otherwise be quite
valuable in situations exactly like this one.
