Sure, but we haven't even released beta1 yet. I'm saying that we nuke
it as "already not what we want to deliver".
At the "beta" point, it seems that we'd really like to be much closer
to reality. Alphas are pretty throw-away, but betas... we want to be
close. And we already know that this unreleased beta1 doesn't match
what we want to release.
