Actually, Ian is trying to find out what exactly would make contributors more happy. It's awesome he's trying to moderate the discussion to a useful format.

Shipping a release is not saying "all is perfect". We're very aware of that. But if we waited until "all is perfect" we would *never* have a release.

And since you are worried about backwards compatibility in particular: I just forwarded the notes from last week's Etoys developer chat. There we discussed an idea about how to load old projects into new Squeak versions. How does that sound?
