	Please, no. The freeze is now less than two weeks away (if I
 remember correctly). Surely we can wait until after the freeze?
 Otherwise we start into the freeze with 35 broken packages.

	Our track record is bad enough that we should not tempt the
 fates before the freeze anyway.

	We are trying to get into a more frequent release cycle, which
 means changes like this should happen early in the release,
 not at the tail end.

	In fact, maybe we should consider a soft freeze in effect two
 weeks before the real freeze -- right around now.

 who would really like to have a release before christmas this time;
 preferably by november, to catch the holiday season.
