because that's what they do, what gimp does, what every other project
does. if the head revision isn't compilable nobody can wotk with it.

It's completely reasonable ;)

As sven has said, they made an API freeze recently. That means they
are already pretty late in the development phase. I think it's totally
unreasonable to expect non-compilability on a regular base. How often
couldn't you compile gimp-1.1.2x?
