I guess we are not... I am quite sure everyone here will agree that we should 
delay such idea until we have a real stable and well documented 2.1 branch!
People will walk off screaming if now start with another version...
...but what we need are people using it - not running away from it. We already 
give them the burden of complexity...

But I am quite sure some people on cocoon-dev felt the same itch Berin was 
talking about. I would insist on marking down those itches because that's the 
way we find the needed improvements - whether they make it into the 2.x 
branch or into a much later(?!) refactored version.

At least that's how I see it...
