I can't really answer this question: as I hinted at monday, I'm not
going to try to police issues.
Honestly the codebase is too large for one person to "police" what
issues go in and out of a release.
If its something I feel i know pretty well, I'll give my opinion, but
in general this stuff needs to be decided by the people that know it
(e.g. you, Chris, Ryan).

I will only say (not knowing about the classes in question) that there
is always the conservative option to mark things experimental and
change them in 4.1.
Its conservative in the sense that various examples/docs and such wont break.

+1 this would be really nice. There are a lot of new APIS/changed APIs
in 4.0 and documentation is vital because e.g. people are not going to
be able to go off of Lucene in Action etc.
