Because the changes on the 1.0.0 branch will not break ABI as they will
be bugfix-only and it will allow us to upgrade to 1.0.0 later.

Yes, there is, but of course I cannot guarantee that. But it shouldn't
be a problem too big as the beta3 is already in pretty good shape.

rebuilds of openssl there should not be many as I suppose there will be
a final release soon.
