Again, John, that is a wonderful question... From my perspective I
had my head down working as hard as I could to make this deadline... 
I knew about the alpha deadline and this dealing... 

I my past, added things of this size in a beta release was actually
common.. In alpha release you get the software married to the hardware
(i.e. barely booting) and in beta release you added everything else... 
Now the post beta release is when the door close... nothing but bug fixes..
