With all due respect for the hard work of the people doing the hard
work, I am quite disappointed with the way an arbitrary deadline seems
to have been set and several problems brought up recently (or not so
recently brought up but a proposed solution brought up recently) seem
to not be getting the attention they deserve because ``there is no
time'' to properly consider them.
Please don't release with known fixable flaws.
