I appreciate the support and that the XHTML code was committed.  My comment
was that this is now a great new feature for Geeklog.

My point was that the template caching library could also be a great new
feature as well.  It has been decided that it will wait until the next
release.  I don't buy the code freeze argument, as the freeze really wasn't
a freeze at all, or at least for all.

I honestly don't care anymore.  As much fun as this all has been, I've tried
to make my point, it was either received or not.  I accomplished what I
wanted, that was to voice one man's opinion on all this.  That I've done,
now I'm done.

I'll go back to working on my plugins and theme enhancements and leave the
release stuff to you guys.
