0.x releases solve the problem of a component that is needed by other
projects and wanted by users but whose API is not believed to be
sufficiently stable to promise backwards compatibility. the code base is
of sufficient maturity to be recommended for use but users need to be
made aware that upgrading may not be as smooth as is usual for most

the alternatives are much worse: components like jelly who have been in
alpha for years because their API is not stable or having to allow
releases of components from the sandbox.
