We've got a few important fixes to roll into a 1.8.1, due out "as
soon as the bits are in place":

- panic when cache bypass is enabled
- panic during shutdown and periodic flush, on *BSD
- broken volume callback
- OS X fixes
- some more RPM packaging fixes
- Solaris build fixes
- make public headers/shared libraries more usable

There's a little bit more left to be done on the last one, but
otherwise the rest of the pieces are basically in place, and just
the mechanical work of cherry-picking and making the release.
We've been sitting in "hopefully next week" for a few weeks now,
unfortunately -- life conspires to introduce delay.
