I like to think I'm pretty serious about controlling scope creep to
prevent a release dragging out, but this one seems like beta testing
uncovered a flaw in new code for the release.  In my book, that
makes it fair game to balance the risk of breaking things by
changing it now against the problems we'll have long term if we
leave it alone.  I'm not sure if that was the basis of saying it was
too late, or some other consideration.
