It's still too early, probably.  Kai is about to finish the medium/large
code model changes in the next couple of days and then we have to
rebuild almost everything from scratch and test.  Right now I would
target April to set up the release area.  That doesn't mean we can't
start earlier, but there's certainly no immediate pressure.
