Set our goals high, and don't be afraid to fail at them.  Set the goal at
"releasing the official 2.0 at AC Europe", if we miss so what.  Apache
hasn't historically done release candidates.  Those are our betas.  As we
get close to actually releasing the code, we roll a tarball and just
release it.
