Right, and I'm sure there are libraries that will depend on an updated tool
chain: even if it's just a requirement for quickbook-1.4. Actually that one
might be the most problematic ones to merge: does it depend on the trunk
version of spirit/fusion?

But as Beman says, we have to do this sooner or later, I would vote for:

core libraries.
new/updated libraries.

In that order.

Just my 2c, John.
