My main concerns is that there would be no more changes to the layout
engine and no API changes; what I fear most is code that cannot be
easily disabled should we find a major, hard-to-fix bug in at the last
moment. I suspect that the 'repeat headings' falls into the layout
engine category, while the sort cols/rows is mostly about manipulating
the PT. If the latter is close to being finished, I would say just go
and finish it; the former is probably best left for later as suggested.

As much as I would like linkgrammar on win32 ready for the release, what
we really need to tackle with utmost urgency is the printing bugs, and
that is what I expect to be working on in the coming weeks. It would be
best if someone else would take linkrammar win32 under their wings; any
volunteers among the volunteers?

Well, we can call the end of April release 2.3.0.

Yes, I think this time we have manage to maintain decent levelel of
stability throught the development, which I am very pleased about.
