None really - I would just like to cover a few things prior to launch
and right now I need to focus on a couple of other tasks - given the way
you worded the first request with a reference to lazy consensus and
invoking a clock doesn't leave much wiggle room... so I figure it cuts
both ways and I'm trying to turn off the clock for another day, two
tops. I'll do my best to come back to this today.
