Thank you for the warning message Terje.

My problem is that people will start to develop things and it's 
neither to let people develop on things which are not stable, because 
if you have said before that it was a BETA and that could change, 
they will argue that it's not backward compatible.

So we can move fast forward but with the risk of making mistakes. If 
we do that We have also to document to explain good practices.

It comes also with the LogValidator Tool of Olivier.
