By the way, I don't understand where the problem is? So the broad public does 
not see every releases, so what? This has happened in the past and probably 
will continue to happen: 0.9.0, 0.8.6g, the old-0.9.0-from-0.8.5, 0.8.5-1, 
0.8.3, 0.8.1337, and who knows about older versions.

I can see a problem with making a bad release too public, although this cannot 
always be avoided. But I do not really see a problem the other way around.

As for 0.9.2... In a ideal world we would release everything at the same time 
anytime we wanted. maybe we need to admit that we cannot release handle every 
platform as well/fast. What's wrong with having 0.9 from 0.9.1 on Linux, from 
0.9.2 on OSX and from 0.9.whatever on Windows, and from 0.9.666 on BeOS?
