Understood - but for those p. h. bosses in particular, a solid 1.0 is
actually an advantage IMO: they don't shift their acceptance minimum
version if 1.0 actually work - and slapping a 1.0 tag onto the software
in whatever shape is in will just make PHB state "never install anything
before 1.2"...

A real boss should state "use what works best whatever the name" and let
the technical staff make the decision and not care about the reasons as
long as the tech staff make reasonable decisions...
