Count me in agreement, too, with a caveat:

We already shipped version 1.0 in August of 1995.  We are arguing about
version 1.1, and it has suffered from the addition of too many bells and
whistles.  Take them out, and leave them for version 2.0.

For 1.1, let us be as compatible with 1.0 as possible.  That will
alleviate the interoperability problems.
