Well, then, here's one user that requests the next major release.  The 
features discussed seem to be in common usage already, as the number of 
posts indicate, so a new release makes sense.

I can get by without these features (e.g. I'm currently using predicates 
arity 2 (first argument (the key) is string, second argument (the value) is 
a predicate) to replace maps), but I'd like to be able to use a system that 
isn't missing features in common usage on the mercury-users maillist.

A major release with the new features would be particularly helpful for the 
work I do:  besides doing exploratory programming and research, I develop 
prototypes for and deliver systems to commercial and non-commercial clients.

Or not.  Like I've written, I can get by with workarounds, and 0.10.1 with 
the package of extras is an excellent system for delivering systems.  I 
thank the Mercury group for providing it.
