Why the hysteria right now?  Can't we do a somewhat delayed release of
sparc if need be?

Robustness and quality is all important.  And a good installation
document for sparc and all ports.  If you burn users with a bad
release, that's worse then never releasing.  Waiting until it's good
is the best middle path.  Remember RedHat 5.0?
