There's a definite lack of any plan whatsoever here.

1.0 is out, warts and all, for better or worse, stop bloody playing with it
and get on with developing the next release!!

The *ONLY* work to be applied to 1.0 should be "this will burn your house
down if you don't apply it) type of patches. The server meltdown fits this
bill. We might want to ask ourselves how 1.0 got out with that serious a
bug in it anyway.

Everyone seems to be trying to bug fix 1.0 as though the release never
happened. Forget about it, it's done. Let's get on with 1.1 and make
sure that *it's* rock solid.
