IMO, my statement is a matter of fact.  :-)

It's a question of breaking the problem into two spaces and tackling them
separately.  If we get them both tackled before 2.0 cool, but it's not
cool IMO, to tackle them both together.  Finish one (the one that is a
requirement), and then add the second stage to it.  Holding up the first
part until both stages are done doesn't help anybody.  :-)
