This is my preference.

We aren't planning on calling the first release 1.0dev, but in recent 
discussions I thought 0.9pr was the agreed release name. So we should 
probably call it that on the compliance page.

I don't think adding/removing releases from the compliance page is 
something we plan on doing frequently.  A side by side comparsion is 
only required now because the Trunk code is a complete re-write.

Once the trunk code has stablized and its being used in production, 
everything relating to the maintanance branch can probably be removed 
from the website. When further releases are made from the Trunk, it will 
simply be a matter of updating the compliance page to reflect what the 
latest release supports.
