Can we be optimistic and hope not?  :)

Guess this was only sent to folks subscribed to infrastructure@; I haven't 
seen it on any list I'm subscribed to anyway.  Good to know that they 
consider this set-up stable now; but if they really want to encourage 
projects to migrate, perhaps it might not be a bad idea to (a) let them 
know directly and (b) sell them on how worthwhile the pain will be.  I'm 
sure the pain's worthwhile from my perspective; I'd just rather wait until 
we're sure we're in a period of calm than embark on something now only to 
discover next week that things will get complicated.
