That's fantastic news, Kay (and Patricia)!

I've just built trunk and committed initial support -still needing work- 
for a new language for 4.2.0. And when the time comes for assigning 
subtasks for 4.2.0 I'll be ready to do my part.

Patricia: I will surely respect your preferences, but if you'd like to 
practice "emergency" (or "bugfix" in general) releases then the best way 
would be to focus on a 4.1.3 release. 4.2.0 won't happen soon anyway, 
and based on my experience I foresee that all issues will be common 
(except localization, and except scope of code changes, much narrower in 
4.1.3). So, if you wish, you can be an "apprentice" release manager for 
4.2.0 and a "full" release manager for 4.1.3 at the same time, with the 
same processes and discussions. If you coordinate with Kay the overhead 
on you and the community will be minimal, and we could release both to 
our users. As I probably already wrote, is a good 
starting point if you need an overview.
