Hmmm ... don't think I agree.  The donation of eRServer is our "sexiest" 
feature for 7.4, and one of 3-4 items to make the press pay attention to the 

Also, if we send two releases within 2 weeks of each other, 
1) Most reporters won't read them both, and
2) we won't get both of them together in time.

But I'm willing to be persuaded, especially if you/somebody has text prepared 
for a release around eRServer that will go out this week.
