When we hit stage1, Ok. For this stage, I just don't think it should go in. I'm happy to have a RM overrule me, if they choose.
Now, I might bend to rules for some types of work, like quality polishing of the new objc code... or finishing out the implementation if there are some rough corners that just weren't completely finished. Very important features, like, m64 darwin support, might also be worth the risk.
