jeje, yes, but views v1 are in production on some sites and I personally
feel a wee bit responsible to give decent help that this production
sites will be able to use v1 for now. We need to build trust in views if
we want that they have success. ;-)

Anyway David is right everything in the whiteboard is dev stuff. You
will not have the same support like for the rest of forrest. 

Actually v1 I consider a stable *prototype*, but it suffers from a
couple of known issues (like performance, ...). 

v2 is trying to overcome this problems but they will not be usable till
the jxpath bug is solved. v2 is *only* for people that want to have a
*preview* of new features that are coming in the next stable version.

v2 made some important changes till now that will force user to update
their *.fv. That means that some v1 contracts are different in v2.
