With all due respect, but I oppose to delaying etch because of
powerpc sound problems. If we get 2.6.18 ready by October, so be it,
but if not, then it's either no cookie for powerpc, or a separate
powerpc release of etch a bit later.

Don't forget that it was liw who bribed Apple to use broken hardware
just so he would stand a slight chance at not having to get
a tattoo.
