Periodically we do go over the whole bug list and push what we can
past 1.0.

Feature-wise, maybe, but not in terms of stability.

Remember that Linux had many users before 1.0, as people gradually
realized that it was getting stable and that Linus was just being
conservative. We're not going to be quite as conservative, perhaps,
but still pretty cautious, because when 1.0 comes out, it needs to be
as safe for your data as CVS.

The main purpose of calling it "1.0" is to say that these interfaces
are relatively stable. If we release 1.0 and then start changing
interfaces, we've missed the point. And it's not as if we're
suffering from a shortage of users or testers right now. Let's worry
about bugs and features, not labels :-).

No, don't worry, 1.0 has no effect on our jobs. (By the way, Greg
Stein *is* one of the Collab guys.)
