I'm sorry, but I find such advancing schedules with little warning quite
objectionable.  Particularly the cutoff for new functionality implicit
in the last of the alphas.

I have been working on patch 1454481 to try and make the original
alpha 3 deadline in the context of my other commitments.  I still
hope to get it done early next week, but having that deadline advance
without apparent warning just made things harder.
