This is one possible step. Another would be to provide binaries of
development releases with a fixed timeout - maybe two months - after
which they stop working. This could be configurable at compile time so
that it is still possible to build outdated version for reference
purposes (or similiar), but it would prevent Joe Average from using or
distributing outdated versions.
