At lunch today, Guido raised almost the same question!  Tim and I
argued that we should continue the feature freeze, and spend any extra
time wasted while we wait for CNRI to quit stalling to resolve open
bugs and do more testing.  It's been a long time since the last bug
fix release, and there are already a lot of new features.  We'd
probably be best served by working hard to make 2.0 stable and solid
-- and then getting 2.1 released quickly.
