According to what I'm reading in those links, I'd say
it's not ready yet.  No configuration migration plus
no graphical configuration?  I mean, configuration
migration is *most* important on the first release.

We have a six-month release cycle for a reason.  Let's
wait.  In six months, we can make a release that makes
people say "Wow", instead of releasing now and making
people say "WTF".
