It's something that's apparently controversial within the team working
on it, has a rather noticable impact on the distribution and is getting
changed when we're considerably into the freeze. All of these things
point to being cautious about changes and consulting widely, especially
the late in the freeze bit - this is going to make it extremely difficult
to deal with any issues that might be noticed.
