Isn't anyone else bothered to see so many uploads with urgency=high
because people are trying to squeeze them under the deadline?  Is
requiring a period of package testing before they're included in woody
only a good idea when we're /not/ just about to release?

I'm sure some maintainers are worried that if they don't get these fixes
into woody, they'll be stuck with the bugs for another two years until
woody+1 releases; and yes, I'm also guilty, uploading one high package
and one medium package, according to my confidence in each that nothing
could break.  But trying to squeeze so many untested packages in doesn't
seem like the best way to go about creating a release.
