Steve, ports-freeze dates are set and published ahead of time just as dates 
for releases are. It's obviously not a good thing to have to try and be very 
conservative with commits to ports (in order to have a maximum number of them 
working for the next 4.x release) while at the same time there is loud demand 
for fixing a big number of them for -CURRENT.

Don't bother telling me I'm whining, pointing at the handbook again and saying 
"don't expect anything to work on -CURRENT at any given time", you're shooting 
the messenger.
