The purpose of the pretesting is also to enlarge the number of
machines and configurations in which the new version is run.  Doing so
might very well bring serious bugs we never heard of before, and thus
change our notion about the importance (or, rather, lack thereof) of
the problems we now perceive as bugs that are serious enough to delay
the pretest.

And I do agree with Kim that waiting for when there are no more bugs
will keep us waiting forever.

I say let's start the pretest.
