Right.  Seems that nobody is recommending we change any of
the milestone dates.  So, as far as I'm concerned, we are still
on target to tag something called KDE 4.0.0 on 23 October
and I'm happy to let the MWG manage the expectations
in any way they deem appropriate.

I think I understand now.  I was *so* confused by the initial messages
in the thread.
