That would work, but 2.0 implies a big shiny new and completely

That also makes sense, but as we are essentially releasing from trunk,
which has not had that much public exposure, should we go through a
beta release cycle?

I am happy to disconnect, but there is no new killer feature to
justify calling it 2.0. So I will go back on what I said before and go
with Alan and Ulf on 1.6.10. The only thing broken then is our stable
branch rule. It should probably be a fresh branch, so the branch
naming will have to be sorted out.
