Agreed. What I think might not be a bad idea is this: set a date, say
August 11 (a month from now). Until that date, work on 1.2 things. Once
that date hits, stop. Release 1.2 (maybe take another few weeks for a beta
cycle). Start work on 2.0. If we make darn sure to enforce this "stop
date", then we won't get stuck spending six months on 1.2, and never
getting to 2.0.

Well, there are a number of things in the HTTP/1.1 patch I need to go back
and rework. (I'm planning on doing that this weekend) But I suppose, yeah,
that sounds about right.
