Perhaps we should have that discussion. I expected us to release 2.17.4, 
whenever that happens, fix the obvious bugs in that, and call it 2.18. 
We've done enough already that it's worth another stable release.

Actually, it seems that quite a few people in the newsgroup are using 
2.17.3 - another sign that we should do a stable release soon.
