The problem is there are many versions claiming to be 0.9. The original
one on tromey.com (which did not support multiple sources) probably has
the best claim of being "the real 0.9". I think Chong's suggestion of
releasing 24 with package.el 1.0 makes sense, and if we decide to
backport a few changes for official 23-compatibility it could be 0.9.1
or something.
