2 bits of feedback on the beta announcement:

I have software that reads the stats channel.

Please, if you have a new schema, put it on another URI so that software 
that wants the old schema gets it, and software that wants the new 
explicitly requests it.  E.g.  '/statistics/v3'

Flag day changes are not good...

I also have a patch that provides just the config data on another URI 
(/config)  - which I wish you'd accept in some form - it's very useful 
for management software that doesn't want to parse all the stats (which 
in perl takes forever), but does want the list of zones served.   I sent 
it to you folks quite some time ago (and could resend).

Since you're obviously in the code, would you re-consider this? It's 
pretty straightforward, it simply selects a subset of the data in the 
(then-) existing flow.

Thanks on both counts.
