It seems like we are arguing over the version number of basically the
same thing. I would like to see 3.0.1 released in early February for
nearly the reasons you name. However, it seems to me that there are
two kinds of issues: those like __cmp__ removal and some silly IO bugs
that have been fixed for a while and our waiting to be released.
There's also projects like io in c which are important, but would not
make the schedule you and I want for 3.0.1/3.1. It's for those longer
term features that I want 3.0.1 and 3.1. If we immedatly released 3.1,
when would those longer term projects that are important for migration
make it to stable? 3.2 is probably a while off.
