First thing, Russell, is that I agree with so many things you say.
Specially regarding the "reliable realm of Debian".

In any case, I didn't mean:

>> "I must have the very latest, and I must have
>> it now"

It's not helpful how often we get that: "Move to another distro".
Let's welcome more (I assume we do want more users on our base, don't
we? I know, better quality than quantity, but still better quality in
quantity). I don't think its incompatible with the Debian way to say
I'm excited to see a new version, as long as the new version is made
in the Debian way.

Lets do right, not "right now". I'm in no way "demanding" a new
release sooner. If the answer to my question of "estimate" is May, so
be it. Its an estimate, isn't it? Would it hurt Debian if we postpone
Wheezy to April or May? I don't think so. But to September 2014, I
think we might have a problem within the cycle.

I just want to go fast to Wheezy, because Wheezy is a penguin with a
red bow tie.

And, most important than all:
I won't move to (K)ubuntu because I already bought Debian aluminium
adhesive stickers to put on my notebook. So thanks for the suggestion,
but I didn't liked it.
