Nice to see a project where "beta" means "we think this is almost ready
and we need to know what bugs to pull out while we're completing the
documentation" rather than (say) "Well, we've had these really cool ideas
and we'd like one or two hundred thousand people to try some really early
code and tell us where they'd pay us money to go with it".
