So the result will be a huge merging headache when all the remaining 1.0
bugfixes need to be forward ported. Particularly with inferior merging
systems such as CVS, it's going to be a lot of maintenance overhead
without guarantees of getting it right.

I might be a bit more optimistic with SVK, Git, Mercurial or such
things, but that's not Dovecot's repository system.

If you're into headaches, jump the gun.

Else, I haven't seen a reason to rush 1.0 I'd consider reasonable or

Not that I'm making Timo's decisions though.
