I don't think it does that much harm to the project. In fact, I would  
consider the EBN a good thing. However, it may be a good idea to  
suspend it temporarily. Perhaps the number of recompiles caused by  
people not fixing krazy issues will allow some of us to be more  
productive. It may also spur some of the newer developers to work on  
other things besides fixing Krazy issues, which in the grand scheme  
of things, are less important the closer we get to a freeze. (IMHO)
