Think we'd get slammed for security updates only?  I can live with 
shipping with bugs, but really really hate having to ship something with 
known security flaws, especially in packages such as NetworkManager and 
wpa_supplicant which might own the user before they even get a chance to 
get the updates.

Also, part of me is wondering why we waited to send this for pressing 
now, though.  IMO, we should have sent them off to be pressed when we 
had the final images done, which would avoid having to ask this 
question.  :-)
