To a significantly large number of people, it is far (vastly, 
extremely, infinitely) more important to have a rock-solid out-of-date 
platform than one in which all the latest bells and whistles (almost) 
work.  The 3.7 Unix VM is going to be very important to many of these 
people for a long time yet.  Delivering a broken 3.7 final (or one that 
they cannot reproduce reliably for themselves from scratch) would be 
nothing short of irresponsible.
