Still feel that way after a few *thousand* bug-mails?

It's done for now: I left 2.2.9 as a separate version because we do
occasionally get reports against it. All of the old milestones have
been deleted as well, and I corrected 2.5.4 to 2.5.5, which is the
next release, and added 2.5.6. I also moved all of the open bugs in
2.5.x to 2.6.0 and deleted 2.5.x as a milestone--we'll never do a
2.5.x release.
