I hope not, and you may be right about the effort required to fix. Actually I'm not arguing the issues either way. I'm asking for enough information about the intention of the public release to answer JC's question about priority issues. Also I'm trying to establish logical links between issues for scoping releases (NOT saying that the fixes are related, but asking whether it is logical to fix one and leave another in the same area).
All the best with your investigations! Sounds like a big mess of different enumerations -- I hope you and Bruce can sort out which should be used where, and how to determine them reliably.
EDIT: From what has been written here, the Linux install issues may require a new build environment, and then backwards support (older Linux) may not be trivial. The OSX issues are not just installers, but fairly basic gtk version issues.
