My opinion that the holidays are probably a great opportunity to do some 
real fine tuning on the 3.1 release and really give it that little extra 
push.  There is no real preassure other than what you put on yourselves, 
there are no new distro releases from major vendors pending.  Just go 
another month and get it clean and right and packaged.  my $0.02
