+1, I'd appreciate a patch for 1.2 if it's not a total pain to fix.

I don't see us being able to go to 2.0 until after it's been out of beta for a few months. I hate to see the 'current' branch being deprecated before we have a workable 'stable' alternative to upgrade to. I can see saying no to fixes for 1.0 and 1.1, but there are a fair number of folks that don't feel comfortable running beta releases in production.
