I'm very excited by this, but I'd like to not consider this "done" for
another could of days. I've been combing through the error logs and
nothing new seems to be popping up. That said, this is a very delicate
bit of infrastructure, so there is a possibility, albeit a very slim
one, that something will be off and we'll have to roll back to lucid
until the issue is cleared up. I think this very unlikely, but I would

deployed. I do, however, think that it's reasonable to consider the
Rubicon crossed and fix any issues as they arise instead of rolling
