My  feeling is that these are milestone releases as we head towards a
2.0 release proper and I don't personally feel that there are sacred
cows in there, i.e. I don't subscribe to the "once it's it it can't be
removed" notion.

We do need to have a discussion about the
format/structure/capabilities of the 2.0 release and when we think we
might be ready to create such a thing. To a certain a extent we've
been down this road before and for some reason it's not been plain
sailing. We do though need to reach some conclusions so that we can
get on with building the interesting stuff.  So first things first how
do people suggest we go about doing that?
