Right... but the one problem with this argument is that it could be
applied to any feature.  You could say that, unless we release with
feature X, we are depriving our users from using feature X.

Perhaps it would better to release whenever everything that does exist is
relatively stable and working well as a system, as opposed to waiting
until everything exists.

Although I think there's a difference between "unstable" and "incomplete,"
I don't think it much matters, as long as releases are made in some form
(official, unstable, snapshot CD's, whatever).  And obviously if Debian is
somehow not meeting the needs of the community, some other HURD
distribution is free to arise.
