There's a bug day on Friday.

It seems a bit senseless to freeze the trunk the day before the bug
day.  All the bugs I'm planning to work on are important for the
alpha.  How much inconvenience will it case to delay the freeze until
after the bug day?  I'd say we should push the alpha a whole week
rather than screw up the bug day.
