Take the plunge, we owe at least that much to the TM team, apart from
reporting bugs.

That being said, I have a Ruby (Rails, Sinatra) & Java (Android) setup for
work and open source both and until now, there hasn't been a deal breaker

and they will get resolved once Alan and co. are ready to call this as RC1
(or whatever makes more sense than alpha).
