I agree with Bruce here. If you want to apply that operator lookup cache 
patch, I would have another beta. (And I am not personally against it, 
because I feel major performance fixes may sometimes slip in as "bug fixes".)
If you all decide against that patch, we might as well just go for RC1. The 
catalog changes seem rather trivial, and just a required initdb is no 
reason for calling it another beta, IMHO.

Great work on that patch, btw.!
