I fear the only way to shorten the freeze time is to have a disincentive
to work on unstable.  Either don't allow uploads at all, a period when
uploads aren't allowed (near release time or near freeze time or both), or
some other strange scheme.  Unfortunately, everything I can think of to
shorten a freeze will hurt unstable.
