I hear you shakedown. But expectations can smack you in the ass.
>I am expecting this kick ass version<
Expectations are a double edged sword. When they're not lived up to, they're a let down. That's not to say you shouldn't hope
for that hot version, but the fall isn't as far if it doesn't materialize.
Your golf analogy is right on. Once you make that bird from off the green, those trips into the woods while still annoying are worth it as you might have a chance for a bird on that next hole.
You can even pee while you're there.
