sorry, I should have mentioned this earlier when 1.7 was ended.  1.7 is past
its lifecycle so feel free to commit to the 1.7 branch instead of
nominations. In fact, it might be worth closing the -nominations branch with
a configure notice.

for 1.8, same thing without the configure message. though I'd like to see if
someone is willing to pick up 1.8 first.
