It certainly wouldn't hurt my feelings.  It was supposed to be a 4  
month development cycle anyway, and it was a mistake that it was  
scheduled for April.

And I'm definitely off the fence with regards to our taxonomy  
implementation.  This is madness.  Number of tables is a meaningless  
metric.  Community consensus, reduction of coding headaches, and KISS  
design are important metrics.  Split 'em, and do it properly.  If not  
now, immediately after 2.2
