This is *exactly* what I want to achieve: No API changes between minor 
releases. It might very well be a personal tragedy for you that some really 
cool new feature won't show up for some time, but I think I can live with 
that. And may I remind you of your own proposed major/minor numbering scheme?

I really urge you to improve your writing style: Almost all your emails seem 
to imply that you have extremely elegant brand-new solutions to the hardest 
problems, envision the future without using a crystal ball, have mad 
programming skillz, and know what the world wants, while the rest of the 
people on the lists are shortsighted idiots. If that's not what you want to 
express, think twice before hitting "Send"...
