CyanogenMod 9 Update: Fewer Superfluous Features, Potentially Longer Wait

Steve Kondik (aka Cyanogen) put out a public update to the situation with CyanogenMod 9 earlier today, and revealed a few interesting tidbits about Team Douche's progress. Here's a few excerpts we thought were particularly important:
