No such announcement was ever made. What Mark announced was that
Objective-C bugs would not be treated as release-critical. What this does
is to impose a time limit on getting Objective-C bug fixes into the
compiler. It may well be that all remaining Objective-C problems get
fixed before 4.0.0 goes out. If not, there's still the opportunity to fix
them for 4.0.1.
