Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Libtool for 1.3 / trunk builds

True - I have no objection to waiting for 2.2.1 or 1.3 to be branched,
whichever comes first. The main point is that under no circumstance
should 1.3 be shipped with the same 2.1a pre-release as 1.2 uses -- it's
time to migrate to something stable.
