Right, these sorts of cleanups (splitting off packages) should happen
during alpha, not beta.
The beta release date has gotten pushed back a couple of times as we try
to get near the end of our "to-do" list for 3.7. Currently, since
there's not a huge amount left to do, I'd say we should shoot for a week
from this Friday to move to beta, which would be March 5th.
We could try to get in as many of Adam's cleanups as possible before
then, but it's probably not critical if we don't get them all in...?
Then, once we move to beta, we'll remain in beta for 6 weeks of just bug
fixes so things can stabilize. (At the end of that time, 3.8alpha would
be opened. Or possibly it could be opened in the middle of that time.
But we do want to have at least some period of only 3.7beta being
available to enforce testing. And there's also the perennial issue of
whether the next release will be called 3.8 or 4.0...)
