Although we've dropped the idea of letting the ARC problem drive a very
short 8.1 cycle, I would still like to see us shoot for a relatively
short 8.1 cycle --- less than a year for sure.  The main reason is that
I think we'll be flushing out performance and feature issues in the
Windows port that we cannot reasonably back-patch into 8.0.*.  PITR also.
In general it seems to me that 8.1 will need to have a consolidation and
fill-in-the-blanks flavor after what we did for 8.0, and that will be
helped by a shorter devel cycle.

As a proposal: feature freeze maybe early summer (June or July), beta
maybe Aug/Sep, final as always "when it's ready" (maybe Oct/Nov with
a good tailwind).
