Not that I'm in a hurry for this, but I'd argue that there might be a 
reason to rush 1.0, which would be to encourage more work on 1.1. 

So, while most people seem to want 1.0 "so that they can run a stable 
version," I'd say that getting 1.0, counterintuitivly, will actually 
make the 1.0.x release tree less stable, because more effort would go 
into new features in 1.1.
