Sounds to me like you don't fully agree w/ Travis - he said "This is exactly
what I was worried about with calling the next release 2.0."  Seems that
Travis understands that the larger community, whether we want them to or
not, _does_ "attach...much importance to [a] big number change" and wants to
avoid calling the next release 2.0 precisely because he recognizes that the
changes we do think we can make in three weeks don't warrant that magnitude
of a number change.  But then, perhaps I shouldn't speak for Travis, sorry
Travis. ;-)
