Some of us are waiting for an official release to use subversion in
our projects even though we could easily accept major changes in the
interfaces (though not incompatible changes in the repository format
obviously). If 1.0 is more than a few months off, could a stable
release named .8 or .9 or something be created, with a "we know it
won't eat your code, just don't expect upgrades to be painless"
provisio? That is to say, "this is not beta code, but don't expect the
same sort of interface stability 1.0 would mean"...

Of course, if 1.0 were to happen in two months none of this would matter.
