Hmm, sure, we can hold off the big patch.
With the current plan, 1.3.2 should be out on 4/3.

Some intermediate (small!) steps however I'd still like to be able to apply?

However, it would be nice, if You could test the patch on Your systems, prior
to me moving it into trunk. I want to limit the "down-time" of trunk (There
may be a few places, where additional headers are required -- as unnecessary
headers were removed in lower-level headers).
