For completely non-technical reasons 10.10 was released on 10/10/10, which was 
a Sunday.  The was the Ubuntu release process works, it's on a weekly cycle 
that finishes on Thursdays.  For 10.10.10 we ended up essentially finishing the 
release on Thursday and then not releasing it until Sunday.  We'd have to d 
the same in this case.

Personally, I don't like the idea of having something ready to go and then 
just not releasing it.
