Good to know.  I' have to admit to being puzzled by HDFS-200, since 
Nicholas resolved it as a duplicate on 7 January, yet Dhruba's continued 
to post patches to it.

Dhruba, Stack: do you have any thoughts on the appropriateness of making 
a release with HDFS-200 & HDFS-142?

I assume that HDFS-200 as-is does more good than harm, no?  Also, 1.0.0 
doesn't need to be flawless.  If we identify critical bugs after its 
release, then we'll make a 1.0.1 release.  We might even call the first 
1.0 release something like 1.0.0 alpha.  That said, I do believe it will 
still be stable sooner than the release from trunk.
