Not the release manager opinion here: seems to me that you should be able to
proceed on the main branch because as you say nothing else depends on the new
lib -- so any mistakes only affect named parms. Worst case is that Doug can
pull the library before the release if it doesn't get to an acceptable
condition in time. Of course if you are altering other libs (say mpl for
random example) as part of your work then this theory is blown to shreds...
