He was wrong about the need for multiple anna sources, which seemed like it
involved major changes, but resulted in being trivially supportable.
Since this was a major point which proved to be not so true, it naturally
follows that the initial 6 month period may be reduced due to it, not sure
though, my own estimate was also of 6 month to 1 year of etch delay.
Also, this begs the question to wonder which of the other points is also a
not-so-well-thought innacuracy or over-dramatization.
Anyway, the point is moot, we will discuss this issue here in the next year or
so, and never come near a release if we depend on this issue being solved
