Well, then you might as well not have a schedule at all. The point of
setting up a schedule is not to have a deadline that we must meet or
die trying (and certainly not to ship whether it's ready or not, as
a certain other OS database has been accused of doing). Rather, the
point of this exercise is to give individual developers a framework
to plan in. Without a target date it's tough to decide what is
reasonable to work on for 8.5.
