Servo is moving almost to this version and it's been working pretty
well even with lightly mixed native and green tasks. Debugging in
particular seems much improved (except on OS X 10.9 where Apple has
removed gdb).

Some of my favorite things from 0.9 are the dead code warnings and the
almost total removal of the option dance. Servo's code gets a little
cleaner every time we move Rust forward.

Happy testing!
