I can't believe you would suggest this. We found these bugs by luck
and only because we were testing for the release. If we do not get
this out to the users, as I have been screaming for months, we are
never going to get this release done. Waiting another week is nuts.
What tests do you personally intend to run on this build in that time?
 Since we have not released this, what users are testing this?

We need to get the new tarball out ASAP and ideally signed and
released. Obviously that depends on what we find.

-1 on waiting.
