Too bad. There are a lot of packages out there, why should everyone else
have to wait? If we hold up a couple of months for package x, someone
will then argue that we should wait another week or two for package y.
Then we'll have a month of shaking out bugs in both packages caused by
doing a quick upload to get things in under the wire. It's not worth
it--there's already a lot of new stuff in potato that deserves to get
released.
