Where else does it look?

OK. What could we do about this? GLEP 55 was one suggestion.


I'm seeing a lot of people shooting down suggestions, and not many 
people presenting good, workable solutions. Could we get some more of 
those on the table?

Here's basically what I've seen:

- GLEP 55 will solve all the world's problems
- Change PMS to bash 3.1, and go with the "wait a while" that we'd 
  previously done
