Don't know if Rene was explicitly referring to the Locale Kit, but we already 
know at this moment in time that it *will* change soon. So I think releasing 
it does not make sense. Let's stabilize it first and then release it as 
experimental API. Once more external developers have ported their 
applications to it and we are sure the API is ok, we can make it public.

So, from my point of view, let's leave it (the API) out of r1a2.
