Hmmm. Yup, remember that post now, sorry for ignoring it.

Ben Reser, what would you think of doing a 1.0.6?

Steve, my feeling is to leave this one up to Ben. I certainly
understand where you're coming from. But with 1.1 on the horizon
anyway, he may want to minimize work. On the other hand, if he's okay
with it, then I'd be +1 on a 1.0.6... And sussman may have a few other
issues to throw on the heap, if it happens (he'll follow up).
