I don't know if I am eligible to vote, but here are my 2cents.

As a potential early adopter of RSE (1.0) I would prefer to get a stable API.

Whatever changes need to be done, please do them before releasing 1.0. Don't 
restrict yourself to a minimum set which requires further API changes after 
1.0. That hurts, as most people wait for a 1.0 to show up before they adapt 
(at least they don't expect the API to be stable before the release but 
require it to be (fairly) stable afterwards).
