I have nothing against that.

On the 1.0 housekeeping business, I've created two new svn branches:
  * 1.0.0: this is what will be ultimately released as the 1.0 final
  * 1.0: this is for stuff that don't made the freeze but should go in
1.0.1. Once 1.0 has been released, we'll just remove the 1.0.0 branch
and work from this branch as we do for 0.7 and 0.8. But the freeze
demands that we have a specific 1.0.0 for now.

And so trunk is now for the future 1.1.

I've also created a 1.0.1 version in JIRA so feel free to move tickets
from 1.1 to 1.0.1.

All this is to avoid crazy svn manipulation in the future, but don't
take that as an excuse to start working exclusively on post-1.0
stuffs. I'm watching you!

Oh and that means that commits to 0.7 will have to merge 4 times
(0.7->0.8->1.0.0->1.0->trunk) so have fun :)
