And why's that? Most likely because they've all too often seen some 0.3
version marketed as 1.0 for funding or marketing reasons that was not
ready to market at its time -- too tight deadlines promised, problem
complexity underestimated -- reasons enough.

And what's the problem with PHB meddling in the affairs of his tech
staff anyways?  If PHB has the time to be involved in such discussions
rather than handing on a set of fit criteria to the CTO, he's got too
little work, with all due consequences 8-)

I'm always at a loss when end users who have rarely, if ever, seen the
internal code, i. e. looked behind the scenes, make any statements to
code quality, 1.0 readiness and everything.
