I think the wider community will be OK, as long as we stay calm about
not getting overwhelmed with the number change, and just doing an
ordinary release.   I can't see us losing many users if they pick up
2.0 and don't see lots of new features, at least, that's never worried
me in other people's releases.   In any case, I think we're committed
to the 2.0 version number at this point.

Best,

Matthew
