I agree in principal, but I would say that many of us 'care' when this
is released.  There is significant functionality that will be added in
4.0; and it's simply not always an option to deploy a beta.

I don't think anyone has quite said this yet, though I would assume it's
what many have meant:

  - What are the major obstacles to getting netbsd-4 out the door?
  - Is there specific functionality that some of us could be testing?
  - What, in terms of resources, would help releng get where they want
    to be?

At least that's what _I've_ been wondering.  Those of us that would
prefer to be running 4.0 in production might be able to spend some time
helping to get us there.

Just a thought...
