LSD is much nicer than GSP, though.

Not necessary.  Most of the work (time-wise) will be discussing
potential changes.  Once we've decided what changes to make, it
shouldn't take more than 2-3 months to get them done.  That's
eminently within the devel time between stable releases -- I mean,
it's even within the aggressive schedule I proposed last Jan.
