Given that the most common distinction between alpha and beta is
"feature complete" I have been arguing all along that the existing
"alpha" release should have been labelled "beta". I would be +1 on
changing that for the next release before we branch.

FWIW, while I want to see is move towards RC, I am OK with waiting for
Serf fixes as long as someone will standup for each bug and say they
have the time to fix it and perhaps give a rough estimate of how long
we should wait.
