I'd like to know this too. As Sean M says, we frequently make
compromises to support CD. In a sort of platonic sense, it is a
great goal, but it would be a lot easier to achieve if it had
participation from the people doing it.

Many deployments are several months behind. If _all_ (or even many)
deployments are that far behind, maybe we could consider saving ourselves
some pain?
