	On what basis have you decided that no pstrem bug fixes shall
 be allowed "from now on"? Seems to me, looking at the bugs out there,
 that we are not yet in a position to say "waaal, we almost have a
 good enough system, so let us not rock the boat anymore". 

	The release date should be based on the state of the system,
 not on the calendar. The priority is quality, rather than a
 deadline. (I am not saying we allow upstream releases indefinitely; I
 am saying the reasons for moving to an early beta stage should be
 less arbitrary, and be based on a more solid technical ground).
