You call the freeze and when it is a disaster, you can take the credit.

ISTM the issue is "what freeze date is the sweet spot, that doen't hold us
up endlessly but allows maximum chance to get in some of the features we
badly need?"

My previous suggestion of mid June was based on my impressionistic

Andrew Sullivan is right, though, about the bad press we would get from
missing shipping the Win32 port - it would do a lot of damage after it has
been talked up so much.
