Personally, I think it's good to discuss these things, but we shouldn't
give others (=users) the impression that everything we did with 2.0.x
is "wrong" and needs to be revised. If one looks at the mass of mails
in the dev list over the last weeks, there were nearly only RTs and
nothing else.  Taking only this might be seen as an evidence of the
current state of Cocoon.
I also tend to the decision that we should give users more time to
learn the new concepts of 2.0 before we redesign these concepts again.
IMHO, these are all things for Cocoon 3.0 but not for 2.1 - but that's
only my personal opinion, so you can simply ignore it.

I still think we should try (again) to reach the "release early release
often" theme and focus on the 2.0.3 release. This does of course not
mean to not discuss RTs etc. They are always welcome.

So, to answer the question from Torsten, I would vote for "If not"...
