 From the technology perspective, sooner is better. I think it will be  
beneficial to be able to get a feel for the depth of variation of  
interactions across platforms, as well as to keep an eye on how our  
code is faring in other environments even before we've begun to  
actively support them.

That said, if it's just a question of a couple of weeks until  
September, I think we'll be fine waiting. But let's not hold off too
