3.1b2 slip details

  Bryan, Andrew, DavidA, and I spent a bunch of time looking at the 
important UX pieces that still haven't landed, and we came to the 
conclusion that we don't have enough real feedback and polish on two 
significant, high priority UX bugs to just land them and hope for the best.

Since shipping b2 is a non-trivial amount of overhead, and the current 
set of UX-exposed changes in b2 is small enough that we wouldn't get a 
tremendous amount of high-value feedback by shipping what we have today, 
we're going to slip 3.1b2 somewhat.

Rather than set another arbitrary date before we have feedback, the 
current plan looks like this:

* land the migration assistant very soon (I'll let Bryan comment on 
when) and set up a test day to get feedback

* do some final polish work on the quick search / global search 
separation extension in 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=545955> and blog about it 
requesting feedback

After we've got that feedback, we'll then set our new 3.1b2 date.  If 
we're sufficiently lucky, it'll be very quick, and we'll just need to 
make small changes and land the extension once the feedback comes in.  
But if we feel that the feedback prompts non-trivial changes, it could 
be longer.
