Well hold on Bruce, that isn't quite fair. I know there are patches in 
this cycle that have been waiting on reviewers/comitters not the other 
way around.
Clustered indexes for example. I know that Gavin is "this close" to 
having vacuum finished for bitmap index on disk. Alvaro's vacuum patch 
isn't done
either, although he has submitted WIP.

Perhaps it makes sense to say:

Feature Freeze: April 1st., no "new" patches accepted for 8.3
Patch Freeze April 15th., Authors have until the 15th to address any 
committer concerns

?

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
