I suspect that's a bit aggressive.  We have a couple of issues that I
think we should fix before beta1:

- the pg_stat_statements cleanups we were discussing on the other
thread, since that's going to involve changing column names/types
- the Hot Standby vs. index-only scans stuff, which needs a WAL format
change, and is my top priority as soon as I get unburied
- SP-GiST is unsafe for use by hot standby slaves, since I think
queries returning wrong answers = bad
- http://archives.postgresql.org/message-id/1333124720-sup-6193@alvh.no-ip.org

I'm not sure we can commit to a timeline for beta until we know who is
taking care of each of those things.
