Don't worry, nothing is being rushed through.  Only internal
representations are currently being changed (e.g. unit tests).  No
changes to the API will be made until 1.1, and then only after the
discussion is over.

I think your quote above refers to the e-mail Jarrod Millman wrote,
but that was simply a typo, and should have read "since it shouldn't
affect the user API".
