You'll note I didn't say drag it on ad infinitum, nor did I say we
should make it stay that length of time permanently. I said for the next
release make it a specifically longer length of time to do development
work in.

That's all. I'm saying that I think there is room to discuss a different
timeline other than the 'every 6 months, release' timeline and I think
that given the tasks set ahead for FC5 that I've heard batted around
over the last N months that it would be worthwhile to lengthen the time
for development for this release.
