I put 1.4.1 4-6 wks out to give the apprentice release guys some time. Also,
there are some small fixes that should go in, Travis' commits from this
morning, for instance. Lets say a code freeze a week from monday, release as
soon as possible after.
Realistically, I don't think Py3k will be ready by April-May. Fall is
probably doable and maybe there will be some things for a SOC person to work
on this summer.
