I watch the checkins for the sake of the 2.4 document, and haven't seen any 
bugfixes that seemed really critical.  No one in c.l.py seems to be running 
into any of the memory leaks that were fixed, and none of the fixed bugs 
seem likely to silently lose or corrupt data.

Is it worth holding 2.3.1 until after Panther ships, on the assumption that 
its release will turn up more users and more bugs?  If not, 2.3.1's timing 
can probably be left up to the release manager, who can make the release 
whenever he feels like it.
