As far as users know, all work on 6.0 was postponed to get 5.6 done.  At 
the time of 5.6's release, it was the only release the team was working 
on.  Work on 5 should have been something the team was quite familiar 
with by that time.  If 5.6 took 3 months to finish, then Dag's question 
is quite fair: why would we expect 6.1 to take so much less time?
