Okay, okay ... let's not start getting goofy here. As I don't remember 
Larry every insinuating that his decision to release was simply to "keep 
up with 4.0", let's leave the rather insulting and uninformed 
speculation at home, shall we?

Knowing Larry, I'm not inclined to think that his decision to release 
was based on something as trivial as tree politics, and I don't really 
appreciate the insinuation that our release managers are so petty as to 
sacrifice quality for mindshare over some overblown internal dispute.

Quite frankly, he doesn't have to explain himself to me ... if he thinks 
it's ready to go, then as Pier said, I trust him implicitly. You'll have 
to forgive me if I accept the word of a longtime Tomcat hacker over your 
half-assed second-guessing. If you have some specific technical reasons 
why you don't believe that 3.3 is adequately prepared for an RC cycle, 
then bring that. Just because you're not a committer doesn't mean that 
valid points will be ignored. But If you want to sit here and talk in 
vaguarities and spin political jive, taking thinly-veiled pot-shots at 
my comrades, then you could really just spare us all the wasted bandwidth.
