Don't worry, you're not bothering at all :) Just to clarify version numbers
we're going to release a 1.2 soon (instead of 1.1.2) but that still won't be
based on trunk. That will probably be 1.3.

I think about 2 months is a reasonable timeframe. The trunk would be good
enough to be released in the coming weeks but there are backward
compatibility issues with previous versions that we want to fix first.

Backporting would probably be a lot of work. A "private" release of the
trunk could be more appropriate. Would you use a snapshot?

See above :)

Nobody has volunteered for it yet. Assignment is a bit of a rat's nest in
BPEL but adding this functionality shouldn't be too complicated. If you're
ready to work on it that'd be much appreciated :)
