According to a test run I did last night, we don't have regressions compared
to 0.25. Our current failure count is 22, not counting ensure-directories-exist
because I didn't remove the scratch directory, and the previous count was
30, so we got a pretty nice improvement from the printing fixes. We did
try and rush the release a bit, I suppose, but we picked up nicely.

I think we should just release it, and look at the next milestones, which
in my mind would be roughly

1) strive for sub-20 failures, there's a couple that should be pretty
although not trivial (clos, make-condition)
2) find out why our build nowadays takes 7 minutes, we used to be able to do
it in 2 minutes. Something(s) has increased the build time quite a bit.
3) take a look at defstruct, it looks visibly slow when looking at the tests

And of course any other improvements that scratch people's itches. :)
All in all it looks to be in a good shape.
