Reading this thread has me very excited - what a great decision to extend
the code freeze of Drupal 7 for a while! In particular, I enjoyed/share
chx's comment that 'Drupal 5/6 is quite good enough to hang-a-reputation-on
for some time to come'. Indeed they are.  :-)

OK, we'll postpone the code freeze for now.    At this point, I won't
make any decisions or promises about when the code freeze will be.
I'l revisit this question in a couple months time.
