Agreed. The bitstream hasn't changed either. I don't see any reason to 
delay. However Jack agrees that a more of a marketing build up would be 
good, so we'll go with the compromise.

Alpha 4, May 31 (better day for me) - bitstream freeze
Beta 1, June 8 - demo players and content, media blitz

That gives us a week to ramp up, and a little more time to flesh out the 
spec. I'd like to actually do the media blitz on the 9th and 10th, so 
the code is already done, people have time to propagate changes to tools 
and we're not trying to coordinate two things at once.

Yay schedules,
