Of course, last-minute "bug fixes" have also resulted in problems
that have required re-releases in short order. So yeah, maybe "freeze"
isn't a good term, but generally what we mean is "we plan on
tagging and rolling soon and want to reduce the risk of
problems on the present code tree so we would really like
it if no new features are added and bug fixes be as risk-free
as possible". :)
