Awesome. No argument here. Does anyone have a reason why we shouldn't go 
with 0.5 for a release? If you do... I don't really care. :) Let's go 
with 0.5.

BTW, one more pressing matter: How do we actually go about making the 
release? By this, I mean: what is the process for creating the source 
tarball? I notice there is no 'dist' rule in our Makefile.
