FYI; this time I have rather stringent plans: At TUG 2008 in Cork, I
want to give a talk about xindy. The submission deadline is End of
April, and I will have to write the new code until then. (I have to
assure that my talk topics really work. :-)

That new code must be included in the distribution then, and autoconf
must be updated; but maybe you and Jörg can give me a hand for this.
(I'm not very knowledgable about autoconf.) Therefore, a realistic
timeline is probably sometimes in May.
