Hmm, I missed your 80% (had ~500 mail messages in my mailbox after the
holiday here, haven't exactly read every word :-)). I'd more or less agree,
if it's basically working on most platforms then we can beta release it.

I guess what I thought I was saying is that we should be much more
stringent during beta testing than we were last time, to identify some
of the silly bugs that slipped through in the last release and make
sure all our supported OS's are checked off. You're table/checklist idea
seems sensible for during the beta cycle even more so than before.
