So would we.  Just something would be better than nothing.

Each to his own.  I think that the version number should be a hint.  If
yoko is that mature that calling it 1.0 is a good idea, that's great.  I
know that with Geronimo, we made the mistake of calling the basic kernel
"1.0-M1", which really confused people since it was only a display of
the architectural ideas, and not a 1.0 candidate.
