        I had been aware that we were going to freeze in January since

        Two weeks into the freeze, it is not unreasonable that
 packages with RC bugs are given short thrift.

        Oh, stop throwing a tantrum. It is not as if the deletion is
 permanent -- you have still the serttling period to get the
 bloody thing back into potato.
