Something else to consider: Would calling it RC instead of beta increase
the number of people playing with it and testing it?  Calling something a
beta version scares off some potential users/testers/bugfinders.  Lots of
bugs just aren't found until hundreds of people use something rather than

Of course, maybe we still want to scare off non-developers at the moment. 
I'll leave that decision to someone else; I'm just pointing out a likely
side effect.
