Some things (like plugin documentation; and maybe plugin versioning) seem like
they are very important to get done before the release.  Ross has done a lot on
the plugins, but even if we help, what if we don't have these done before the
release date?  What would you guys think of postponing the release until we
finish them?  I don't know what would be best...

There are also a lot of other issues scheduled for 0.7 that we haven't been
working on.  They don't seem too critical though.
