But stefano -- remember on Tomcat where the idea of saying *2 implied that
it was going to be the next version, when in fact there is no guarantee? How
many *2's would we have to live through.

Also, I disagree on working on a CVS branch. CVS branches are well suited to
evolutionary changes, but they constrict the possiblities of a full refactor
-- at least mentally, unless you work in a different package on a different
brach -- in which case you've got the equiv of a new workspace.

Maybe a new mailing list is ok, maybe not. I see as a problem the
segragation of the community if something like this were done. It's a group
of people that go off and come back saying "ta-da". If that's what people
here want to see though, fine. I'll roll with it.
