 Any idea about other popular modules?  WSGI?  mod_perl?  Are they ready for HEAD?

Freeze?  Our versioning policy is and has been, n.odd == unstable, n.even == stable.

Beta could have some extra encouragement to avoid changing the API.  Perhaps
chilled over ice?

Extra assurances things are 'finished'?

But users will probably react more strongly to '-beta' than they do to '-alpha',
and will be more likely to participate if their favorite new feature didn't
also become part of 2.2.
