This doesn't surprise me.  Developers are people, too.

I konw.  I am refering to the first patch-release for 2.0---namely, 2.1.  (^&

People can argue that they want more delays for the 2.1 patch release, just
as they are arguing that they want more delays for the bug-fixes in 2.0
now.  (2.0's feature set was frozen some time ago, yes?)

I expect that 3.0 will be more than 6 months away, unless the release schedule
is *really* being ramped up.
