There a lot of crazy (yet cool) ideas shaping up for Drupal 4.8/5.0.   
People should already start preparing their patches; I hope to use  
much shorter development cycles in future aiming towards 2-3 releases  
a year.  I'm thinking about trying a time-based release cycle, where  
development is frozen at a predefined date.  It sounds like something  
worth evaluating.  It doesn't hurt to give it a try.
