i agree.  i feel the same way about project.module. :(  devel.module  
is one thing -- i think that's so helpful for folks working on HEAD  
that it's a good idea to keep it updated with the latest.  otherwise,  
i don't think any modules should start being ported until the code  
freeze.  i've definitely learned this the hard way in this  
development cycle, and i'll remember it for the future.  we should  
probably document this on the "updating your modules" handbook pages  
as a best practice, with a short explanation about why it's a bad  
idea to start porting to HEAD while it's still a moving target.
