Well, if the dispatcher is all that changed in such a release, we
could do a 0.91 afterwards.  I think there's another consideration
that I didn't mention too.  I feel irresponsible releasing software
that we can't support and I'm concerned that this would be the case
with the dispatcher.  I have a difficult enough time now digging up
Cocoon knowledge when questions come across but with
dispatcher-related ones I have no clue.  Maybe it's an unfounded
concern, I dunno...
