Perhaps. Or perhaps we will find during the pretest (should it happen)
that it has its own set of problems.

But that does not invalidate what I said: we have lengthy discussions
for small featurettes involving twenty lines of code, and suddenly we
add almost 14,000. That's not a freeze. Or, if *is* a freeze by your
definition, I don't find it a very consistent definition.

I have nothing against erc, nor against its inclusion in Emacs. I just
would like to see a real freeze, and a planned date of release (not
necessarily public), even if we miss it by a mile. We've "missed" it
already by two or three years, I'd say.

A few months ago I joked that I would eat my Emacs reference card if
we get to release 22.1 before 2007. Suddenly it seems less and less
like a joke to me...
