I'd be in favor of setting an arbitrary date for a 2.4 release, and when 
that date rolls around stabilizing and releasing the CVS tree, no matter 
what's been implemented or not implemented.  If we've made major language 
revisions by that time, fine, but it's worthwhile even if 2.4 is just 2.3 + 
(various bugfixes deemed too risky for 2.3.1) + (a few new modules).

PEP 320 estimates February 2005, a 19-month gap matching that between 2.2 
and 2.3.  That seems a bit too long, especially if there are no large 
changes that require testing; aiming for autumn 2004, beginning to freeze 
in August, seems reasonable.
