Just to make it clear that I agree with you two, too. I simply dumped 
the JIRA status and told that I had nothing against moving every open 
issue to 0.5. So, if no one object on this we now miss only the 
volunteer that will act as the release manager.

After your benchmark I applied the package refactoring I proposed in 
MIME4J-51, so I'd like you and Oleg to try updating your client code to 
see how many changes are needed and if the new structure make sense. 
This is something I would avoid changing too often, so it is better to 
vet it now before we write it in the stone with a release.
