The downside to pushing FBXMPP to 1.4.3 is that we've been telling users for several weeks now that the facebook fixes would come as part of 1.4.2.
Do we currently have a realistic estimate of how much work is left to finish it up? Is it far enough away that we really don't have any option but to push it to 1.4.3?

> I disagree. The beta period should be for testing of the intended release. Once we go into beta, the only changes made should be bug fixes. I am certainly very guilty of sneaking last minute enhancements in, but that's really not the intention. If we go to beta now, we should plan to release 1.4.2 and then shift FBXMPP to 1.4.3.
Agreed. New features (especially big ones like FBXMPP) don't get added in the middle of a beta.
