These changes alone might have warranted a 1.0.4 release on Friday if
I had had time to prepare it.
As things are, we are most likely looking at 1.1 on May 20th, or
possibly a simultaneous release of 1.0.4 (corresponding to r1331) and
1.1 (corresponding to the current state of trunk plus URL rewriting
and header manipulation).

Yes, definitely. Think of it as 1.0.3 with bug fixes and improved
documentation. This is why I set the cutoff at r1288; beyond that
point, there are changes in the VCL compiler which will need some time
