Recommend we put it out as Alpha-4, not Beta-1.  Have Beta-1 closely 
follow with docs/etc.  Remember the idea before that there'd be no 
change in bitstream between the last Alpha and Beta-1.

This way Beta-1 can be released with docs and sample videos, etc.
Also, if Monty hits his date for OggFile then Beta-1 could ship with 
OggFile support, and we'd have pleanty of time to get the tools sorted
