That's fine for isolated users supporting only themselves. But it won't win
any mind share in the boardroom. If you want widespread deployment to get
proper testing (and hence a larger user base) you need a version number
that gives business people the confidence to install it. Otherwise you'll
be limited to avant garde hobbyists who have nothing to risk.
Once 1.0 locks down, you should see a huge expansion of users. Bug fixes
(not features!) in 1.0.1 will see further expansion. Any new features (like
the recent addition of the wiki to the tarball) should be in the scary and
experimental 1.1, not 1.0.
