I would support starting to merge Random Variables changes in now, 
first, if they are now ready to go.  However, I think we'll need to 
consider how much can really go in by your Feb. 10 deadline without 
slipping schedule.  There are also a lot of things that have been 
labeled as maintenance so I don't think that phase is going to feel 
"long" (February is a short month :)
