I agree that 0.8.1 doesn't make sense.  I don't think that we are  
going to plan to do any more 0.x.y releases.   Bug fix releases  
mostly make sense when you have a long cycle between releases, but I  
don't think they make any sense in a world where we release more  
frequently.  There is on exception, which is if we discover service  
critical bugs, but we can always make a 0.x.1 branch for those if we  
need to fix the version of Cosmo that is already up on hub.

I'd be fine with making the trunk 0.9, or keeping the trunk buildable  
at 0.8 and doing all work on 0.9 on a branch like we did for the  
0.7.x series.  As long as we have a way to release emergency fixes  
for the hub, I will be happy.
