I think we have a long way to go to get to 1.1. What API changes have we
made that are so great that we can't release 1.0.5? The only area where I
have seen real problems is in masked arrays. My preference would be to
release the trunk as 1.0.5, and if not, simply deprecate 1.0.4 and move to
1.1.  I don't think it's worth the time and effort to backport anything.
