This, I think is the crux of the matter (and I think Ben Hyde's comments
are highly relevant, BTW). The problem is that stuff is being done which
is not really appropriate to a beta cycle. Clearly we are really still
in development.

The beef is that voting is getting in the way of progress. But we aren't
supposed to be making progress in 1.3, just fixing it so it can be

Perhaps we should have a 1.4? Then there'd be incentive to get 1.3 out
the door, so 1.4 can be started to have the next round of wonderful
features, without the so-far-off-I'm-not-even-sure-it'll-ever-happen 2.0
as the only reason to get 1.3 finished.
