Well, if that is the case, we need to recruit someone to do 'proper'
releases as there are no guarantees for now of any stability between any
releases (the day the config file goes into the registry or when the new
window management is comitted, I think that a LOT of breakage will occur).

At least when the breakage is in the main tree, people are more motivated to
fix it than when lying in a test branch that nobody will get and use :-)

Nobody ever told about any 'compilation' breakage... Any patch sent to the
list will compile (modulo GL header issues :-) ).
