Thanks Bryce. This, the new stack-trace infrastructure
and the enabling of the new verifier are some of the
things I wish had made it to 4.0, especially since it'll
be the release that'll be exposed to a lot of people
via Fedora. :-/

For the verifier, I guess we can resurrect the
"-fnew-verifier" flag on the 4.0 branch (and, dare
I say, make it the default).
