Part of me says "yay!" and part of me says "eek!".  Questions:

1.  How long will security updates be available for a major release?  It
would suck to /have/ to make major upgrades every 3 months just to keep
on the security update train.
2.  Is next week going to be "rc1", or is the whole release candidate
phase considered a sign of weakness ;-)

It seems that six-month cycles are all the rage now.  Three month cycles
are so 2002.
