No, I tried this, it doesn't work.

Let's just do the release and continue fix the bugs as they appear.

The wise programmer know that 'beta is a state of mind' and 'final is
for their managers to sleep well'.

Real man do 'release -> find bug -> fix bug' and loop around it.

Alpha and beta should be enforced only when major rewriting take place,
which is clearly not the case for Cocoon 1.8-dev.

Stefano Mazzocchi      One must still have chaos in oneself to be
                          able to give birth to a dancing star.
