+1, except for your timescales? This TC is expected to start work in 90days
+ a few for setup?
Do you think 1.2 will be done then?

May 05 to Feb 07 from 1.0 to 1.1?
I can't see 1.2 being done in 3 months more unless you know something
I don't Sam?

Ditto. Which is why I'm backing 1.1 as 'out there', and hoping
2.2 will only improve things.
