plenty of time might not be the issue here.
getting out Beta-1 will get more people using libtheora. not getting it
out will not fix possible flaws.
OggFile was never a goal for Beta-1 (http://wiki.xiph.org/TheoraTodo)

as a compromise instead of having Beta-1 released closely after Alpha-4,
what about a fixed release date i.e.
June 1  - Alpha-4
June 8  - Beta-1
