It is too limiting. I might be on current because I have my
*own* work I am doing on current. You talk as if the only
development on -current is things that "other developers have
officially committed" to -current. The fact that I have not
committed some work to -current does not give anyone the
right to go hog-wild with an 'rm' hanging off a blind 'find'
It still boils down that you do not know why the files are
there. I don't see why you're so determined to cause even
more hassle for people trying to "do the right thing" and
develop their changes on -current.

Don't be surprised if you have even fewer -current testers.
Don't be surprised if we get to Novemeber of this year, and
-current is just as unstable and untested as it was last
year. Don't be surprised if we never manage to release
-current, because it will never be sufficiently tested.
