Thats a good suggestion.

In the past we have done a code freeze and branch creation for the 
front-end and back-end at the same time. I'll talk to Chris about this 
issue. Perhaps for this release we will freeze the front-end 3-4 days 
before the back-end. If thats not enough time, for future releases we 
could do a week offset between the two.
