Last night I merged pingou's work to port to TG2 into MM mainline (on
top of what is currently 1.3.7).  I'm hoping to find time this week to
go through the ~100 patches that are on the 1.4 branch, and port those
conceptual changes to mainline on TG2.  Then the testing begins in
earnest - it's a good bit of code change.  Then we talk about
packaging for EPEL etc.

For expediency here, CentOS should start with MM 1.3.x as-is; tell me
what works well for you, what other features you uncover you need to
really consider MM, and we'll go from there.
