It's natural for a big change like an API to need time to stabilize and be reviewed.
And it's important not to relax the review requirements with API's.
Make sure to get as much people to take a look at it as possible.
Very important to not rush these things. Certainly if you're aiming for a stable api.
(p.s. make sure versions are implemented in a way that you can like break the whole api constantly and
still make new things talk with old things without problems.)
