No, I don't think so.  We're getting ready to release, and it's
important to prepare the build that we think we're going to ship.
(It's not even clear to me that C1 bringup ends *before* we ship!)

An example of why this is important:  to my embarrassment, I didn't
notice until yesterday morning that the Wikipedia activities did not
work on F11/0.84, and never had; I had to spend a few hours fixing
them up.  I don't want to have any more surprises like that.

This is more likely.  Let's talk about it on IRC.
