Jason, thanks for picking this up!  

Now about release schedules... The traditional big-software-company way is 
asking the developers to list their features & give an estimate of how long 
they'll need to complete them, then divide by two and tell them marketing has 
decided that the deadline is September. I don't know why, but in my 
experience the deadline is always either September or January.

Me, I'm thinking that if we aim for an alpha that shows new stuff (including 
new UI stuff) at aKademy, and a final release three months later we'd be 
doing well, but I don't know how realistic it is. In any case, I think that 
we should discuss a schedule proposal _here_ and then propose it for 
discussion on k-c-d -- otherwise the discussion will be even more 
interminable than it will be anyway.

Even better would to actually do the traditional thing, and ask maintainers of 
subcomponents about their estimate & their critical paths.
