Well, the point is, they've already done it... so is it more of a support
nightmare to migrate the Squeak users to 0.94 (and then go do the "real
one"), or to have the Squeak users at 0.93 and the Dolphin/VW users at
0.94?  Even if 0.94 is just a stepping stone to a more radical revision,
I'd still rather have everyone using the same version in the meantime.
