I've been busy with 5.2 release stuff, as have a lot of other people, so
over the next few days I am sure you will get more feedback and as
people ( me included ) catch up with older emails from the last 2 weeks.

One thing is that can we collect all this info on the wiki rather than
over personal email ? That way its easier to work out whats already
there and what else needs doing / adding etc.
