The problem is that we put a lot of work in multiscreen support and if we now 
decide to release w/ the current mcs-manager it wasn't worth the effort and 
atleast I would not feel comfortable with the 4.2 release. We should really 
not release 4.2 like this. Come on Olivier, its really worth to delay the 
release date for one month. We get a better 4.2 for just one month.
