No, MP for x86 won't be in 1.6. The i386mp branch, the kqueue branch
and the nathanw_sa branch are due for merge-in very soon into
-current. Once those are stable, we may branch a 1.7 or 2.0 (but
even the name is far from decided.)

You should think of 1.6 as a "more modern" 1.5. Evolution, not
revolution. Revolution comes with the next release after that, which
might be unusually soon.
