I'm pretty excited about this. I've been playing with 2.0 for a long time,
and am looking forward to finally getting off of our MySQL solution!

I didn't mean to rush you guys or anything. The last thing I should *ever*
intentionally point out in anyone else is pushing back a deadline to get in
that extra bit of polish. I'm the worst offender (and TBH, I prefer the
polish!). I just wasn't sure if I had missed something. Hope I didn't spoil
the surprise.

Thanks again for everything!
