Personally, I've not had it working under previous releases, so I
wouldn't even consider it a regression as such.  Unless someone is
offering to fix it under a fairly immediate timeframe, we have to
press on with the release in its current state.  I don't think it
helps to hold back the release for everyone (and particularly the ARM
port improvements) for a handful of people who are interested in
Shark, most of whom probably work with HEAD anyway.
