I really wish we would've learned something about checking in heavy
changesets within a week of release time, but every major release
proves otherwise. I personally think if we're going to try to stick to
a fixed release schedule for this release and future releases, that
throwing major things like tagging into the core within the last month
of the cycle is a big step backwards.
