Earth-mass planets detected by 2011?

Good news everyone. The systemic blog reports exciting developments for exoplanets addicted (like me). New exoplanets detection rate is now as high as one planet per week. And there is more. If the extrapolation above holds, it means that we will be routinely detecting Earth-size planets around nearby stars by 2011-2012. I wonder when we will begin to detect moons of these critters.
