Yes, thanks for the references.

I don't have any desire to be drawn into the long discussions; many
have made the points I agree with better than I could.  But for anyone
keeping track, put me down in the column of "those very disheartened
by the lack of prior consultation".  I'm also persuaded by those who
suggest freezing much later than December 2009 (like December 2010) is
a better option.

Actually, since I tend to get a fair amount of work done during
December holidays, I'd vastly prefer to freeze in mid-January.
