Thanks for making the snapshot, Evan!  Now we can finally rip out all
that obsolete code \o/

I'm a bit unsure myself.  On the one hand, it shows to the community that
we've been making steady progress and gives people an opportunity to have
a sneak preview of what's to come, and maybe provide early feedback and
bug reports.  On the other hand, you might get misguided efforts at
porting eggs and other code to this version, of which we know the API
will still change pretty drastically.

For now maybe it's best to leave it unannounced (except for here).
People who read this list will tend to know what they're doing.
