Sorry, Richard. I never thought of it as a particularly American
phrase, I thought it was more commonly known within software development
circles than it apparently is. As Nico posted earlier, it basically
means "We screwed up and released something with a show-stopping bug in
it. Please pretend as if this release hadn't actually been made."
