How close to completion is that? Could it be pushed into 2.05? I know the DXE
upgrades are important, to stop iconv bloating all the executables. Perhaps we
could push that out into the betas?

Has anything happened with regard to its memory debugging interface? I.e.: is
it a slot-in replacement for the current malloc() yet?

Should we now consider malloc() to be 2.05 material?

2.04 already has some big changes. If we wait any longer, I suspect it may not
come out this year!
