We've always said that alpha-status means that APIs can change. So 
what's the purpose of making an alpha release ?

Well, this has more to do with marketing and public relations : an alpha 
release shows to the outside world that some work is happening on 
something new and that some level of runtime stability has been reached 
on this new thing.

So I'm +0 on an alpha release !
