A general comment re. NM.  It did seem odd the way such a large change
was made so late in the F8 development cycle, with no real discussion I
could see (please do point me to such a discussion if there was one).

For quite a long time it was unusable for lots of people and still seems
a little flaky.

Was it a case of the rewrite taking longer than planned?
