I don't care what we call it.  They key is that we set up the
expectation with our users.  If you use this release, do NOT use it in
production code.  It is not "supported", meaning we aren't going to
fix bugs in that alpha version if we have already released its
subsequent full release version (or a subsequent alpha).
