Testing is key, and not easy.  You may want to consider splitting with 
a tester that can do some serious bug reports, and has a wide variety 
of test environments. (Jonathan, can you vouch for me?)  It is time to 
move on, but I hope whatever we come up with is a rock solid stable as 
what we have now!
