I can see that.  And it would be pretty hard to keep members of the public 
from treating the persistent snapshots as releases, and then flooding the 
lists when they break.

So, scratch an idea with unintended consequences.  I'll just have to keep 
the snapshots on our CVS slave.

I do hope that the commit-fests will lead to more testing, though, just 
because people waiting for a specific feature will want to try out the 
initial commit of that feature.
