Isn't the whole reason we have waited so long to release 1.0.0 to assure
that it is stable enough to be the latest "stable release" so that we
can begin working towards 1.1.0?  1.1.0 being the next "stable release".

I do see your point of this becoming difficult IF we encounter a security
problem or other showstopper that needs a fix. Whatever we decide, I
*don't* want to model our release methods on Linux.
