I know; it was not meant to be personal.

Quite so and it either needs to stop or the tree should be reopened and
someone come up with a new timetable. The problem is that not every
seems to grasp the significance of feature freeze in the release cycle,
as if it was an unnecessary evil that can be quietly ignored or worked
around. Either we are just hacking for personal individual pleasure, or
we are collectively developing an application for the world out there; I
was hoping we were doing the latter but I am not sure everyone sees it
that way -- am I actually the only person who wants to see 2.4 released
soon? Because if I am, I better stop wasting my time.

No, I am not suggesting you revert it. We will do should it cause problems.
