I think so too. The reason why I wrote the mail this afternoon is that I'm a bit 
worried that we introduce new contracts, that we might have to change for 2.3.

We should *stop now*, finish cForms and VirtualSitemapComponents and release a 
first beta of 2.2.

IMHO the problem is that it would be very difficult for a single person to 
implement all the changes and it would take him a lot of time to figure out 
every detail.

So let's release 2.2 as soon as possible and then it's party time :-)
