Come to think of it this would be the right time to do it:
- We are at the start of the commit period for 1.3.30
- People will be busy traveling to/from WineConf so a regression won't
halt their work.
- Andrew won't travel so he can fix regressions.
- We can directly motivate Andrew to fix those regressions "Oh,
regressions still open? No dinner for you tonight!".
