Of course, not if it means each new release destroys some sort
of backwards compatibility. It would be painful, IMO, in this
particular case to hit someone who just made the transition to
2.0 to then be hit with a 2.1 upgrade.

We need to recall that in addition to a large developer community,
there's also a much larger *user* one :)

>2) We target the auth features for a release we will call 2.1

unless things are horribly wrong with the 2.0, which they aren't
*that* bad, then this would by personal choice. Again, this is mostly
with my "user community" hat on.
