Yes. I don't think we ever intended to go so long with 0.6. IMO,
I think that shows how well 0.6 has held up. But there are definitely
signs that applications need more power from GStreamer, and that
pressure will only increase. Better to have a good 0.8 release
soon rather than a great 0.8 release later.

We need a general API cleanup. In particular, all the dust corners
of the language bindings should be checked so that we can make ABI
ABI-incompatible changes sooner. This is unlikely to be done unless
someone adopts the project and follows through.
Also, I'd like to do a caps implementation rewrite -- I've already
done much of it. If it misses 0.8, no big loss, though.
