Nonsense.  Our goal is to have solid releases, not releases which have 
a predictable hour of birth.  The slink release would have been a mess 
if the release had gone ahead with a serious bug.

Perhaps we should not have predicted a hard 2.1 release date, though
having the date forced us to move forward.  Slink is pretty solid,
just not quite good enough yet.
