That last paragraph may give people outside the project the wrong 
impression, so I'll clarify. What Jerry means by "marketing gimmick" is 
that they're intended to help average users understand which releases 
are the solid, public, "production use" releases. Which is pretty much 
what most people mean by 1.0.
