Kinda what I'm saying, yeah. I think we probably still need milestones
for targeting bug fixes and features, but we could change that to be
keyed off of months. I think there are also widespread external
expectations that there are alphas and betas in a software project so
I'm not quite ready to advocate for "no alpha and betas" at all.
