We all do our thing, so your comment goes to all. :)

I've emailed epg for the Subversion at least.
I will keep your suggestion in mind (I already do that for some stuff
indeed), however this was an issue where I thought the collective could

Yes.  2.1 is labelled development right now.  So see 2.0 as 'stable'.
However, some people might already need the 2.1 features, like large file
