As in right now? I wanted to give an opportunity for someone that knows ogre
well to try to fix it before f16s final freeze. The odds of that are close
to zero, but given were into beta freeze waiting a few more days didn't
seem to be an issue.

I am planning on yanking from f16 and f17 in a few days if I don't hear
from someone that thinks they can do this.
