So v3.0 will be released with "annoying" bugs ...deliberately.
If the bugs cannot be fixed within 4, 8 or 16 weeks
...what is to say they can be fixed be by v3.0, 3.1 or 3.2?

I know my vote will count for absolutely nothing...
but I vote NOT deliberately release broken firmware as a
land-mark version.
It could be quite crippling if it got slash-dotted or some other publicity.

As for people installing "annoying" "buggy" firmware - well I suppose
that's just their own lookout.
I guess that there will be a big banner on the Firmware saying "This
is release is known to contain annoying bugs" ...or will we keep
quiet about that and just pray nobody notices?
