I'd like to second Larry's idea that Dries' official announcement of the 
code freeze include links to the specific issues that are still on the

I'm hoping that upgrading to the latest jQuery falls underneath the UI 
or performance exemption umbrella.

Here's the issue: http://drupal.org/node/146462

jQuery version 1.1.3 was just released and is reporting up to 800% speed 
improvements on their DOM traversal.

The next target release date for jQuery version 1.1.4 is at the end of 
July, and so I don't know if that will fall outside of the 2-3 week window.

Their announcement says that 1.1.4 "will also mark a number of methods 
as deprecated, in accordance with the upcoming jQuery 1.2 release." 
Hopefully Drupal won't be too effected by these deprecated functions. 
The projected release date for jQuery 1.2 is at the end of August.
