Personally, I think this falls (largely) into the category of feature
freeze.  Calling out "end of new module/module removal" makes sense.
Granted, if we're 200k over the size of a CD, we'll probably end up
making the call of remove something, but those should be exception cases
that we wave our hands wildly about, and not the norm.

In general, I'm trying to get a little bit of better notification in
place for handling of the Core/Extras divide by delegating the addition
of some steps to the process ;)
