Aye, it's the long gap from May 24 (3.5b1) to July 5 (3.5b2) that we
were hoping to see shortened if it was possible to get the release
team together.

The fact folks can't currently import extension modules that aren't at
top level is unfortunately going to limit the amount of 3.5b1 testing
the community can do in those 6 weeks :(
