As long as the refactor doesn't change behavior and hasn't been changed in master it might as well go in maint as master. We merge up periodically so both benefit.

I'd hoped to have it far enough along by now to start test releases, but it's not. The back end is mostly done and I'm 3/4 through with the GUI. After that is making sure that the Scheme API is compatible. (It's the c++options branch in my GitHub repo if you want to have a look. I haven't committed the GUI stuff yet, it doesn't build.) We'll have to discuss whether to proceed to user testing without it or slip the 4.0 release when Geert gets back from travel.
