We're experiencing a bit of a shortage of cycles to get the engineering
done to make an abcl-1.1.0 release, so although it is currently
scheduled for the beginning of May, we've repeatedly failed to get
enough regressions fixed to actually push the bits out the door
that meeting early May is a somewhat doubtful.  On the plus side, Rudi keeps
getting us closer to MOP, so it isn't like we aren't making some
forward progress.  

In short, please test for the presence of the symbol for the
foreseeable future.
