Dims,

i see your point.

why not call it RC1 and keep releasing candidate RCx versions until 
performance problems are solved?

however to do good performance analysis and tuning you need to have some 
well defined version otherwise it is like trying to shoot moving target 
and hard to see progress ...

thanks,

alek
