The way it looks to me, it's something like "The first batch will be a
bit late; later batches may be more expensive, or may not happen, or
maybe they'll just be a little late -- or maybe we'll have enough of a
windfall of good fortune to get back on schedule."  Obviously, I'm hoping
for one of the latter two, rather than the former two.
