OK, quick comment. Last I checked, playback still had some serious bugs.
To release a version with the _primary feature_ broken as a landmark release
is nuts imo - everybody new to the project will be turned off. I second the
idea that if you need to release something it should be tagged as
'pre-release' / '2.9b' or similar.

Another option is to temporarily revert to the previous playback engine,
which was much more stable (on the H1x0 at least)...
