Will the USSC have a new crack of Booker guidelines next week?

As detailed here, the US Sentencing Commission has a public meeting scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, January 17, 2007, and the agenda here includes an item listed as "Possible Votes to Publish Guideline Amendments and Issues for Comment." 

In the wake of the USSC's November hearing on crack sentencing, and the fact that it has now been a full two years since the Booker decision, am I naive to hope that there a guideline amendments on the horizon that will try to deal with the ugliness of the current crack guidelines and the reality that the Booker decision appears here to stay?
