Why not?  The following seems like a reasonable plan to me:

By the end of June, decide the release criteria.

By the end of September, have the GCC changes in place and other
infrastructural changes that we know we expect.  Have filed bug
reports on whatever new RC issues will need to be fixed for etch.
(Such as the GCC change, and whatever else.)

By the end of the year, freeze base.

By March 2006, freeze everything else.

Release in June 2006.

Doesn't seem *impossible*, but it requires swinging into gear right
now.  What am I missing?
