Just some initial feedback.

We had a discussion in the office about not bothering with the extra 0 in
versions such as 10.04, making them 10.4 instead.  I don't remember there being
any serious objections.  I think someone, playing devil's advocate, said that with
the 0 the versions would line up when printed in a fixed-width font.

How do we know that we'll have a stable version in April?  I've also heard
people refer to March.  I'd prefer not to name a month or date until we know
that we're ready.  Then we can't be accused of being late.
