I haven't looked at the TODO, but it gives me the impression that there are
too many people interested in having new features in GRUB to be in feature

I believe this is detrimental for GRUB wide usage. For example, support
for new filesystems and, to some extent, for non-multiboot kernels is very
important to draw interest from more developers (specialy kernel developers)
into GRUB.

I vote for releasing 1.0. I'm probably unable to fix many of the current TODO
items, but I wouldn't mind helping in backporting them to 1.0 once they're
fixed in the development branch.
