My problem is that I need to perform the builds myself..  You have the
luxury of a build farm that will do it all for you.  ;)  It literally
takes me days to build everything.

Any estimate on how far off 1.4.1 is?   If it's going to be a few weeks
then I'll go ahead and build 1.4.1rc10 (at least for FC5 if not for
everything else)..  But if it's expected this weekend, there's little
reason for me to spend that time now only to have to do it again next week.
