The ways of wizards can be tricky at times and their words elegantly vague. I have spend a
few days pondering whether your answer meant yes or no, and still can't tell 

There's a few bugs in HTTP POST and HTTP PUT methods


They need to be fixed

Moreover, I am convinced POST and PUT must share a common super class that implements functionality
common to both methods. POST and PUT methods should be consistent in their behavior. Currently
they are not. Besides, it does not make a lot of sense to fix problems in POST but let them
unresolved in PUT, or vise versa

This said, that should not prevent IMMEDIATE Alpha 2 release. However, any sort of beta quality
release in my humble opinion should have these problems addressed

Let me know what you think

Oleg is not a balrog, he is more of an Elf like Legolas or Elrond. 
(Legoleg or Olegolas ... I definaltely like Olegolas)

Alpha 2 is coming this week.  After that we should be increasingly 
focused on stability, bug fixes, performance and a few high profile 
features as we move through a beta or two and a few release candidates 
before the blessed release.  These next incremental releases should not 
be very far apart so we can get to work on some new fun things for 2.1

There is a few outstanding bugs in PostMethod. Most importantly these methods share significant
commonalities, however, currently are not even API compatible
