Thanks Pieter, though my contribution is mainly running the packaging script
:) I know what you mean regarding best practice - one such thing is
definitely around the way labels are used in XREPs in 3, as that can be a
bit of a stumbling block. One of the questions that did come up was how much
we should worry about the sendmsg/send distinction - I know Mikko originally
thought about deprecating send for sendmsg, but to be honest in a language
like PHP the difference really is handled by the bindings, and the extra 3
letters don't necessarily improve the API, so I we'll probably just keep
both, with sendmsg an alias for send.
