Indeed, we are having a hard time releasing early. Maybe the reason is
the massive amount of changes to core behavior in numpy.

The situation here is that a usecase that was working up to 1.6 included
will stop working in 1.7 with no possible workaround. I am biassed
because that usecase is important to me. However, I do find that having a
core package that is such a moving target makes it hard to build upon.
