GNOME pushes for a 1.0 code freeze.

“We are pushing for a freeze of gnome-libs really soon. Actually
the freeze is to make a stable branch on cvs and fix the remaining
bugs there, while development can continue on the main CVS branch.
The stable branch is what we will ship for gnome-libs-1.0. Any
changes or additions to the API for 1.0 should be done now. “
