Update: I have removed all the tickets that were not 041-should or
041-must from the 0.4.1.x-final milestone.  Before doing this, I gave
them all the keyword "041-deferred-20190530" so that everybody can
look them over and see if I messed up.  Some of them are now in
0.4.2.x-final and some in "Tor: upspecified".

We are now down to 4 "041-must" tickets, 1 of them merge-ready.  We
still have 31 "041-should" tickets, 3 of them merge-ready.
