|I am confused... Is 1.9 (1) the development branch that will lead to Rite
|(2.0) or (2) have you switched to the new version numbering described here:
|http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?ReleaseEngineering (i.e., 1.9.1 would be
|the next stable release after 1.8.1)?

1.9 will be based on the current implementation, and will be the
test bed for left-out features like M17N, new regex engine,
generational GC, etc.

2.0 (Rite) will be the total rewrite.  It's spec. is based on 1.8 at
the beginning, and 1.9 features will be gradually merged in.
