I don't see what you're talking about. If it's the problem with
startup/shutdown order, then it has been fixed.

Even if it's not much faster, it is a lot more maintainable and tweakable in
the long run. So to test it, we should release it.

I'd say I hope it won't be needed, as the HEAD branch has recieved all the
bugfixes the main branch had. From the get go, I'd say it should be
reasonably stable. So at least to see where we are in terms of stability, I
really want to cut a Beta 1 ASAP. If it turns out to be good, then the
schedule indicated may be realistic.

For example, one of the major new modules (the new HTTP/1.1 connector) has
recieved separate testing through Coyote, and has been found to be solid. So
I'm optimistic :)
