Well, the changes that we have been going through, moving classes, removing
code, etc, have been pretty radical from beta to beta and from RC to RC. I
guess it is matter of expectations from the user base. I does sound, that
now, right now, we have a stable build. I think it is a bit odd to release a
2.0 release with the explicit understanding that the user base should wait
until a 2.0.1 to become the real stable release. Furthermore, what if, in
theory, the changes asked by users to 2.0 would really not be backwards
compatible with 2.0, therefore needing to call the next release a 2.1? Kind
of odd to have a super short lived 2.0. All of my ramblings to say that it
does not quite feel right to me to push a release out without a
beta/rc/feedback cycle from *some* users.

I'll see if I can get some in there...
