It looks like we'll hit 2 million sometime tomorrow (Saturday).   If
we wait until June 1st (Friday) we'll be around 2.5.  But announcing
on Friday is not good for getting press attention.  And if we wait
until the next week, June 4th, then we'll almost be at 3 million.

So....  maybe we just make a smaller announcement, via
ooo-dev/ooo-users and social media for the 2 million mark, when we
actually hit it.  Then for the larger Symphony announcement we also
note the 1 year achievement as well as give an updated download count,
2.5 or 3.0 million, depending on when that is ready for release.
