Does pre-alpha suggest that it isn't useful?

Well, what it's trying to say is that
1) there are some features missing we'd like to implement before a 
feature-freeze and "real" alpha, beta and finally a stable 1.0 release.
2) it's probably full of bugs ;-)
3) it's under active development and in a state where we easily can 
integrate new features/improvements/etc...

The primary reason for releasing it in this "pre-alpha" state is to gain 
as much user-feedback as possible.

I'd say it's about as "useful" as sPatch is, but might have some bugs. 
At the current state Windows-users may prefer using sPatch or hamaPatch, 
but even yet it might be of some use to Mac- or Linux-users.

I've done some testing and fixed every bug I've found - so in general 
you could trust the program and it's undo feature, but still it's better 
to save often...
