Wishful thinking. One the one side, there are too many platforms, and the 
(re-)build is too slow. You need to rebuild after a RC, if only to update the 
version number. On the other side, people just keep finding bugs and 
committing fixes. There is no way you can have a binary release in sync with 
the tree, short of banning developpers committing fixing - which makes no 

P.S.: there are quite a few known (and unknown) bugs in 0.9.0, and most of 
them are NOT going to be fixed in 0.9.1.
