Parenting: Start kindergarten or wait another year?

More and more parents are holding their children back a year and starting school a bit later to give their child an extra edge. They call this "redshirting" your child. My son's birthday is late September, so he's right around the age cut-off for starting school. He's not quite three yet and we're already debating whether or not we'll hold him back from kindergarten when he turns 5.
