Let's see what the changes look like and then decide.

After all, they have to be made eventually, if not for 1.0, then for
trunk leading to the next major release. So the work won't be wasted.

We can't have a policy of holding up major releases until all bindings
are ready. The set of bindings is ever-increasing, and yet has fewer
developers paying attention to it than the core code, so blocking on
bindings is a recipe for delay.

Nevertheless, we can still make an effort not to ship with broken
bindings, if the changes look good. Let's not decide in the abstract,
let's decide based on the changes themselves.
