  Let us push changes that are appropriate to the update stream.  And
then I can also build a "beta" installer with them.

  So many iteration went through with it and I can't keep track of the
subtleties but the version seems to be good.  A ticking object keeps
moving, so that is good.

  I assume that .2.cs.gz is the latest but should be fine except the
need for new translation.  We need to push them.

  Should be pushed.

  Should be ok.  Can't remember that #forceNewFileNamed: had some
issues in some circumstances, but in this case it is ok.

  I still have a bit of reservation but it is ok at this moment.

  Heh heh, it doesn't hurt.

  This one is a bit tricky.  It used to be able to say

  aRectangle look like aText

and the rectangle changed it apperance.  With this patch, you can't do
it anymore.

  Another issue I can add here is SQ-291.  It should get in, I think.
