I agree, let's postpone promotion of BU2.

I'm not to sure about DynaBeans. I don't know how they can fit into the new
API. Besides I think that libraries that force users to extend library
classes are dated. But we should discuss this at a later point.

I have some time and I'd like to push out a new release of BU. I had a look
at jira and the project itself yesterday. There is plenty of work to do! :)
I'll comment on this on a separate thread. Your comments are very much
