Okay.  Eric also talked to them.  He was told they wanted a branch soon 
so that they could start pulling it for their RC builds.  Their 
drop-dead code freeze is February 16th.  It seems that branching today 
or Wednesday and releasing on, say, February 2nd should meet their needs 
and give us time to fix bugs, etc.

Does that sound sensible?
