Should it just get deleted from 2.1 cvs?  We're not alpha or beta anymore.


For convenience, here it is:

*****************************  W A R N I N G 

   Some user accessible points in this software package should be considered
   "alpha". This means that the developer team is not investing _any_ effort
   to provide backward compatibility between alpha releases for these parts.
   This software will continue to be released as "alpha" until its code,
   schemas, and APIs are considered stable.

   Until then, there will be no warranty that newer versions will 
maintain backward
   compatibility for such parts, even in the most simple cases. Of course
   Cocoon will be compatible to latest release, 2.0.x release. However, 
   "beta" status is reached, backward incompatible changes will be made 
   when absolutely necessary to reach "final" status.

   The Cocoon development team understands the importance of reliable
   software as well protecting user investments through the creation of
   a solid development platform that doesn't change. On the other hand,
   the Cocoon project is a pioneer in many fields. Most of the technologies
   it uses are at a "working draft" phase only. Thus, reliability cannot be
   guaranteed before the software achieves its "final" status.

   Until then, no effort will be provided to guarantee backward 
   for any parts considered alpha.

   You have been warned.
