Speaking with my Riptano hat on, not all our customers are going to
move to 0.7 immediately and we plan to continue to provide support for
0.6.  I suspect this will result in enough activity to justify a 0.6.7
release with some additional improvements of the sort you've seen in
0.6.5 and 0.6.6, but after that you're probably looking at bug fix
releases only, should the need arise.
