Yes, this is great news. I feel like all I'm doing is trying to catch up 
with module upgrades, and was worried I'd miss out on really diving into 
d7 before its code freeze. The only sadness I feel is the inevitable 
wait on hook_file. On the flip side, it would give some time for some 
experimentation with hook_file on the contrib side, which would 
hopefully allow contributors to make use of that feature and others 
closer to its launch.

Drupal 6 will have time to mature, and Drupal 7 will be a more solid 
launch for it.
