We didn't know that at the time, though.  We thought the last CF would
take a month plus.  And up till November the CFs *were* getting done
in about a month.

In retrospect, the CF idea took some of the edge off the problem of
lots of large patches arriving at the feature freeze deadline, but it
is far from having eliminated the problem.
