I agree. To expand further, though, I believe that there has to be a
feature freeze, documentation update, beta release, short testing period to
assure no serious bugs, followed by a 2.1 release. I'm not talking about
weeks of testing, just enough to turn up any serious problems.

The other advantage to not including all of the nifty patches in the next
release is that it lessens the work necessary for the documentation/manual.
Powerful features often require lengthy documentation and the changes
between 2.0 and what's currently in the daily builds is already very
significant.
