I wasn't talking really about 'other features' - just some more cosmetic
bug fixes, but you're right, it'll never be perfect, so it's probably best
to just get it out the door.

There were 1.1.xx, there were 1.2.0-15, there will be a Debian 1.3.1, at
least if the precedent holds true.  If our current goal is to get 1.3 out
the door ASAP notwithstanding the known cosmetic bugs, then, would it not
be prudent to hold off on burning CD's untill we catch up with some of
these cosmetic bugs in 1.3.1? 

Once again, I am new to this, and maybe what I am saying doesn't make
sense - if so, kindly tell me and I'll be quiet:-)
