I don't know. Consider that for the transition between 1.2 and 1.3 we
had a 6 weeks of frozen testing (if I remember well).
2.0 has much, much more changes, so I don't think that the testing
period will be shorter.
If we'll be very lucky 2.0 could be released for Christmas.
Anyway permitting more users to use (and test) new version of the
software will help shorting the testing permitting an earlyer discover
of bugs (those not libc6 related).
So I think it is worth the trouble.
