Hey, don't shoot the messenger ... I'm just going by what ppl have been 
throwing around ... personally, I'd like to a see around an 8-12 month 
cycle being the max ... Freeze in Sept, Rel January ... but, of course, 
when Sept rolls aroound, there will be someone petitioning for an 
extension to get this 'one last feature in', and someone else will rally 
up for the cause, and ... 'k, I've gotten a bit jaded over the years? :)

But, 8-12 month seems to be a reasonable amount of time to aim for ... ?
