We didn't. The point of the change was to note that we are less vague
now on what stage of pre-alpha development we're in.

There was no objection when both of us agreed on it. I figured the
group was happy, and if they weren't, then I would have start a lively
arugment which I think will be useful. :)

I define an alpha as non-feature-complete and barely compiling on one
platformi, and a beta as feature complete which needs more testing and
minor porting work. If my definition is agreed on, then what we name
the first code drop will depend solely on the quality of the code at
that point.

I considered it nothing more than a goal; since we never care about
deadlines anyway, throwing another one in the pile wouldn't matter :).
But okay, I'll drop the 2.0 statement; no big deal.
