All software is buggy, and we aren't talking about a 1.0 release, just
0.3 anyway.  So I don't think this is a problem.

It's mostly psychological problem. If someone is Hurd newbie and (s)he tries to use fakeroot for building Debian packages, what do you think that (s)he'll think about the Hurd? I think that such bad experience can be greatly softened by, e.g., a top-level file BUGS that lists major user-visible known bugs. We are not releasing 0.3 for ourselves, we are releasing for getting attention to us.
