OK.  I am away all of next week - if the mass rebuild happens then, 
would it be possible to put the new expat into the tree first?  I have 
built the package here, untagged:


and the library compat package will be needed also to avoid a 
bootstrapping nightmare since some key packages are linked against the 
old expat e.g. python; it is ready to import once reviewed by Some Kind 


I've mock-rebuilt about two dozen packages against the new expat today 
without any problems; I'll attempt to go through them all by the end of 
this week.
