And I'll just throw it out there that a hypothetical hAtom 0.2 is
waiting for everyone's opinion [1], quite frankly even if it's voting
"0 I don't have an opinion".

In particular:
- we want to know _what_ should be included in hAtom 0.2
- we want to know _how_ to do those things
- some issues that people raised need expansion

My opinion is that I'd love to at least get the non-contentious stuff
(if such a thing exists in the uf world) out of the way and consider
doing a hAtom 0.2, then immediately start working for 0.3 with the
more tetchy problems.

Regards, etc...
