I think the other Robert's main point is that getting to beta in only
two weeks is ridiculously optimistic (which I'm afraid I agree with).
I believe that what he's proposing is tossing enough stuff overboard
so that we can finish the January CF in much less than a month, and
thereby have more time for alpha-level testing and stabilization of
the tree.

Now the other approach we could take is that we'll ship *something*
on 7 Mar, even if it's less stable than what we've traditionally
considered to be beta quality.  I don't think that really helps
much though; it just means we need more time in beta.
