Neil, I think that this is a really reasonable time frame for new 
feature and development. It will force us to pick whatever big changes 
are most dear to us, and focus on one or two of them because we know we 
can't handle 5-6 of them. And as Sept. 1 draws nearer, only smaller 
features will be allowed. I support and encourage the Sept. 1 deadline, 
announced in advance, and hope that you stick to it militantly.
