Well said.  The 2.0 release is really not what any of us wanted.  I was 
also looking to 2.1 as the first release 'done more or less right'.  I 
think we can still accomplish this.  We may just have to ignore the 
official guidelines for what constitutes a minor release.

It sounds like you are leaning towards calling this 3.0, is that correct?
