 From my "driver developer" point of view, the prolonged preparation for 
0.9 is a bit of a inconvenience. As it is I stopped doing releases for 
now to keep the old release 0.8.1 compatible and only commit fixes for 
0.9 into trunk for now.

I would welcome an  early 0.9 release -- and seeing all those issues of 
people trying to use 0.9 features in 0.8.1 seems to show that I am not 
the only one.
