[Aboriginal] Pondering an intermediate release.

Each new Aboriginal Linux release has mostly followed a kernel release  
(with other package upgrades swept up into that as I get to them), but  
the ls segfault thing is just embarassing. I'm at a reasonable release  
point for toybox (fixing the ls bug and removing 3 more commands from  
baseconfig-busybox), and pondering just cutting a new Aboriginal Linux  
release using that now.

I'm testing linux-3.8-rc2 and it more or less works. (One patch tweak  
required.) I can cut the release with -rc2 or -rc3 and then cut another  
release when 3.8 proper comes out, or I can cut a second release with  
3.7. Any strong opinions one way or the other?

(As an aside, I start a new job on the 21st and there's travel involved  
so I've got about another week left to work on this stuff before  
there's some schedule interruption. That's also contributing to the  
"cut a release now" side of the scale.)
