Not sure where you got 24 hours:

  Tues  http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2012-05/msg00061.php
  Wed   http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-general/2012-05/msg00060.php
  Thur  http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-committers/2012-05/msg00023.php

Basically, we have beta next week so I wanted to do it before then, and
I have my head down doing the release notes, so I wanted to do it before
I started that too.  I kind of knew the bsdi answer before I even asked.

If you are objecting to me short-circuiting this, I will revert the
patch.  If we can't short-circuiting thinks when we already know the
answer, everyone's work will take more time.
