Right after 0.9.  It's a pretty big change with routing and addressing
so I don't want to destabilize 0.9 at this point, even though the code
in the branch is working pretty well for me.  Alfredo did a great job
with the compat bits, so after the merge NM should work with libnl 1.1,
2, and 3, and finally, 4 years later, we've moved into the modern libnl
age :)
