Should we even be thinking about this for 1.3 ?

Certainly things will be more carefully layed-out with 2.0...

Someone (Ralf? Rasmus?) mentioned that many people consider our
"beta" releases as other people's "minor" releases... I know I do.
I consider our latest beta as our latest "official, yeah we trust
it enough to run it ourselves" release. As such, we really make
life tough on module makers with all the "little" changes we do
between betas... It seems that stuff that worked transparently
with 1.3bX needs to be changed with 1.3bX+1. Some could say "Hey!
This is beta! Them's the breaks" but that ignores reality.

All this revamping seems, IMO, more suited for 2.0 design, rather
that 1.3 munging.
