I'm +1 on releasing a 1.0 version.  It seems a shame to tear up other
people's hard work so flippantly. :)  I think the API is pretty good
as-is from what I've used in the past.  We should make sure the code
coverage is pretty good, though.  Why didn't this ever graduation into
proper in the first place?  Not enough community?
