Can it? I would like Junio to say so.

Still, v2.0 is a better time for this.

And whose fault is that? I never saw any warning about the -rc tag, and I never
saw any discussion about possible features missing in v2.0.

Given that the next backward-incompatible release might be in a decade, I would
have expected people to have put more thought into v2.0, but I guess the Git
project is not really interested in progressive features.
