That's why a wrote a long comment for the last commit stating so. I'll
remove the version bump, anyway.

No, that's not what I meant. Haskore is stable, being used and extended
with additional backends, for fun and profit.

Both, Haskore and Euterpea. Euterpea is a WIP and will eventually
replace Haskore, but not just yet. Think of Euterpea as a
heavily-API-breaking name-changing release of Haskore, that only shares
some fundamental data types.
Haskore is the way to go for Squeeze, Euterpea for Squeeze+1.
