I think Greg is right here. It's many good reasons to "slow" down (and
think) for a short period. Two things that comes right to my mind is:

 *Subversion _is_ damned good already. Let's make sure that our child
  can walk, run and dance like a cat and and stay as a rock. It's more
  that enough to do when the trunk "opens" again.
 *We don't really know 100% what the end users and vendors (the svn
  guis, IDEs and so on) really needs/likes/hates before after the
  1.0 release. It will probably be some other priorities when
  Subversion has met the real life.
