To be clear,
Stability is significantly more important to me than feature-richness.
RT 2.0 will _not_ have significantly more bells and whistles than 1.0. What it
will have is a much cleaner architecture and a significantly improved code base.
Most, if not all, of the feature suggestions I've made approving noises about
are things that are in consideration for versions after 2.0.

This is scary. I'm imagining tracerouting you and seeing links like "Route
84" and "Route 9, Exit 14". Obviously, this is illness induced.
