My understanding is that we wouldn't be committing to shipping 1-month 
after FF, but that that would be the first possible time we _could_ ship 
off of trunk.  I think it's very hard to us make the call about when the 
trunk would ship from where we're standing now.  I'm interested in 
Mark's thoughts here...

Indeed, it'd be nice if we could ship it sooner, but I have yet to see a 
proposal that would thread this needle and balance all the competing 
interests here.
