I'm personally more interested in that discussion than in what's 
currently in the 0.21 branch, but others, like Stack, may reasonably be 
of the opposite persuasion.  So rather than putting one before the 
other, can we pursue both in parallel?

We've never officially had a minor release.  All of our releases have 
been either major or bugfix.  A minor release adds features but does not 
remove any deprecated APIs.  So making 0.21 a minor release would be a 
change in the rules.

Have no deprecations in fact been removed between the 0.20 and 0.21 

Perhaps we can agree that, after 0.20, no deprecations will be removed 
until 1.0, that all pre-1.0 releases after 0.20 are now minor instead of 
major, that 0.20 was effectively 1.0 but we're not going to rename it, 
and that 1.0 will effectively be 2.0, etc.  Could that work?
