What's the rationale for making a 1.0 release if it contains a long  
laundry list of known bugs, going back all the way to 0.8.0? (e.g.  
many unresolved whitespace issues, as of yesterday). 1.0 will be  
interpreted as a call for conformance, and I'd rather not conform to  
a buggy test suite. Why not call it 0.9.5? or 1.0-beta1?

Wolfgang.
