These aren't end-users, and they know it isn't production code or even
supported binaries. They should be able to force install (aka
downgrade), or they shouldn't (and probably can't) use cvs snapshots.
1.9.x gives a false impression of readiness that might fit better in a
release candidate. Especially since even if we release with no win32,
it seems silly to be releasing 1.9.x with temporary complete bustage of
one of our largest platforms.
Believe it or not, 1.1.4 will still have a lot of bugs, even if it is
far less than 1.1.3.
For these reasons amongst others I feel 1.9.x could be a bit premature.
Of course, the call comes down to dom.
