+1, separate release cycles for more and quicker releases.

We could start this process incrementally today by just deploying
snapshots of the 2.2 core jar. No huge announcements or anything, just
get it out there for the bleeding-edgers and to test the release
process. Once we feel comfortable we can do the same for a few blocks.
To avoid the deployment issue, we can opt to just distribute the jars
and assume the bleeding-edgers being clever enough to add the block
configuration themselves from the docs.

In parallel we can maintain a core 2.2 archetype that sets up a working
webapp structure for the 2.2 core (and perhaps some samples to
demonstrate). This should satisfy the "curious-but-not-bleeding-edge"
people in their eagerness to explore the new and noteworthy in 2.2 core.

How does that sound?
