At present, no, there is not a patch against HEAD. I choose to do the
initial sydney work against 1.8.2 because I didnt want a moving target
with relation to testing. Had I done the work against HEAD, I could
have easily hit bugs that stopped be from going forward that were
unrelated to my work.

That being said, it is entirely possible for me to do a patch against
HEAD. I havent done it yet because I suspect it will take me about a
week and I dont want to spend the time unless it's actually going to
be accepted into HEAD.

Perhaps now is the time for me to beginning talking with Matzsan,
Nobusan, and other core developers about if/how that can happen.

Matz, Nobu: Thoughts? How can we get the ball rolling?
