We don't do timelines :).  Actually, the code is becoming part of
current, in a piecemeal way + by functional group.  Some stuff will
take more time though.  In particular the i386 integration (not at
issue here) is hard, and requires some significant testing.

There is also at least one piece of magnum (cleaner profiling support)
will probably not appear, until/when some copyright problems are

It really isn't worth waiting though as the stuff will show up beneath
us as we go.  Likely though you will see most of the technology in
magnum, either in the coming release, or soon after.  We want to end
this branch....
