I'm afraid right now, shipping both is the only viable solution. I'd
recommend you simply put all non-trivial code in a common file, and
refer to that file from both profiles. That way the duplication is
minimal and trivial to maintain.
Because we're making so much deep work on 0.11, I think it will be a
couple of months before it's ready for release. While 0.10.1 is
almost ready, we're just waiting for:
- the work Justin, Matthew, Satra et al are doing on batch systems
- for one of us to take a couple of hours to merge in Tom's git pull
requests with a lot of nice clenaup.
- Jonathan March's bugfix
- A fix for a small wx bug I think I introduced.
- anything I'm missing?
Basically I think 0.10.1 is very close to getting out, while 0.11 is
certainly a few months away (hopefully no more than 3).
