RC implies to me that we can make *no* more substantive changes and
that we as a community feel it is 1.5.0 except for last-minute
thinkos. In my opinion, we're simply not there yet. We need to give
a little more time for feedback from folks before we go off
half-cocked. Perhaps a 'beta' is the next step, but I also think
overloading folks with too frequent releases is a bad thing because
we're creating too much of a moving target. We should let each
release sit for ~2 weeks to give folks a real chance to play with it
rather than constantly spinning out 'alpha1', 'alpha2', etc. So, in
other words, we should be patient and not be overly aggressive. --
