#236 I would like to suggest a feature freeze and audit

I think that its is very important to have stable code. Features are nice but they can be implemented in later releases. The real important thing, especially right before going to 1.0 is to audit that code. That means not just getting a reported bug, sifting through the code and changing 2 lines so that the bug does not happen anymore. No I mean audit. Read that code from head to tail and check for inconsistancies, errors, exploits, or things that have been commented with `well i don't know about this piece but it seems to work' After the audit you got code you can rely on, work with. Then lets see what more brilliant features can be added.
