100% agreed. Realistically this has to be a capping session, not when
the real work starts. If the agent rewrite isn't done, and the parallel
gate basically working before then, it won't work.

Honestly, I think we're going to need to checkpoint before Christmas to
figure out if the preconditions are met, because if they aren't, then
it's not clear the 3 days of code sprint are really going to generate
the results we need.

I'm encouraged by the level of activity in the neutron channel, so I
think right now planning for success is good. But again, we need some
aggressive check points, and people need to realize this is not the
beginning of this work, it is the closing session.
