Clearly this plan went out the window due to the need to rush out 2.7.5 for the
AIM and ICQ bugs.  MSNP16 is already merged, and I'm not aware of anything else
that's merge-ready, so I'm going to call the merge window closed unless there
are any objections.

I'd like to aim for announcing a string freeze Sunday, giving the translators
until Saturday to get their translations in, then cutting a release on Sunday
