So, POOMA does work now, good.  I meant configuration problems,
actually.  The nightly tester we have seems to get into trouble
configuring POOMA.

OK, thanks.

We are in violent agreement.  Now, what I'd like to know is what of the
existing PRs do people consider blockers for inclusion into mainline. 
That's the consensus I want to reach.  I will try and find those that I
would like to fix prior to the merge and post them here.

Does bugzilla have a voting mechanism?  We are probably not going to fix
*all* the PRs prior to merging.  It reaches a point of diminishing
returns where we have stuff breaking because of changes in mainline
and/or enough drift to make the merge increasingly more difficult.
