But the config stuff doesn't need to be in an alpha because it is
invisible to the user.  I/O filtering has had one potential commit made,
and another patch submitt'ed (the second was totally not complete and was
just a possible direction), most people hated the first and ignored the
second.  I am cleaning the second and expect to submit it to the list
early next week.  I really don't know what you mean by non-filesystem

Here's my position.  We have had three potential 2.0's now (not alpha's,
three independant 2.0 repositories), and we are about to have a fourth
alpha for this one.  This one is getting stable, and many of the people
who have been working hardest on this would like to see it released and
moved forward.  We don't need to get everything into 2.0, that's why we
have 2.1 and 2.2.

I don't want to take another year to get 2.0 released.  I would like to
head towards beta relatively soon, because I think this is almost ready
for it.
