What is the current status of registry 2.0? As we are still putting new 
features (recursive uninstall) into registry1.0 I was wondering what the 
status of registry2.0 is at the moment. It is sitting around in trunk 
now for quite some time without active work.

What is missing from registry2.0, what needs to be done? Where can 
somebody jump in and help? Not necessarily me, I just want to put 
general attention to the new registry.

If you install a lot of ports activating/deactivating takes longer than 
actual compiling because of the old file_map.db of registry1.0. I hope 
this will become a lot better with the sqlite database of registry2.0.
