Completely agree - I've been working to that timescale since March.
This is probably the determining factor as to whether the release number
is 7.5 or 8.0?
What I would add is: if PITR and Win32 do make it into the release, I
would strongly urge for an extended beta period. It would not prove good
press if 100,000 new Windows users tripped over on various issues, nor
even 1 press-worthy user was unable to recover correctly.
