Obviously. What I meant is, we shouldn't throw out "doorstop
architectures" (sic) because they still want 2.4. At least not with the
current state of affairs; by the time etch releases, I might have
changed my opinion on that subject.

The situation is different for 2.2; I don't want to see 2.2 in etch as
much as anyone else.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
