after quite a deal of (fairly) bitter experience, i'd probably advocate 
that commons should release just after promotion - but this doesn't 
have to be a conclusive 1.0 release. my reasoning is that there is a 
significant minority of commercial users who do not require forwards 
compatibility but who do require a full - rather than beta or alpha 
release - before they can use it.

so, i'd like to see a 0.x release upon promotion followed by a pause 
for consideration whilst a full 1.0 release (with promises of 
compatibility) is created.
