I have to agree with that logic, much better to announce it without warning 
after a patch is available.

The only problem is I still haven't seen an announcement on this list and 
it just keeps getting worse. First off it's a security issue then there is 
no nix server patch then the patched client won't run under rc2... when 
exactly are we going to be given a clue?

"Please don't update your possibly exploitable clients if you want to play 
on your server and no, I have no idea when you will be able to." Man, the 
wording for this client mailing is going to take some work :)
