The CACAO 1.0 that wasn’t

I have a confession to make: it seems that there will be no CACAO 1.0 release, and I’m to blame for that. Maintaining two branches of CACAO has become tiresome and quite boring over time, and I never fully understood what the 1.0 branch was there for, anyway. So when yet another problem with IcedTea (which was using CACAO 0.99.4 at the time) popped up which could trivially be solved by switching to the “default” branch, I suggested that IcedTea would be better off just using the Mercurial version, and this is what they did. Now, as this version identifies itself as 1.1, I don’t see the point of releasing a 1.0 version from a branch that nobody cares about (or should care about, IMHO) anymore.
