Okay, that's fair.

I have no plans to say anything like that.  My only thinking was that when
the current list of stuff is done, that is an obvious point to say okay,
we're a beta now.  This doesn't stop mroe stuff from being added, just
creates a good time to move forward.  :-)

A lot of these conversations were with people outside of the Bay Area, but
the point is well taken.

As I said above, this was not my intent.  I am just looking to move things
forward with regard to 2.0, so that we can have a release at some point.
