I dislike this.  IMHO it is a good thing for us to shoot for
releases.  Without something to aim for, we could all be going in
different directions.  I really want to see everybody aiming at the same
general thing.

I also dislike this.  A code freeze is a useful tool.  It allows us to
stabilize quickly, because we are stopping adding new features.  At the
very least, we must have feature freeze, and I would hope a thirty minute
freeze for the actual tagging would be acceptable.

I may tag this weekend, or I may not.  I would really like to see more
people comment on this approach, and make sure it is where we want to
go.  I am also going to get home tomorrow at around 1:00, so I will most
likely want to spend Saturday with my wife.  So if I tag, it will be
