It's almost like we need a two-phase commit here.  We do some stuff
and then ask everyone "are you okay with that?"  What if we staged our
releases to an SVN working copy?  Then, everyone could look at it and
if everyone was okay with it, we could commit the changes and that
would somehow be updated in another "live" location on some periodic
basis?  I'm just thinking out loud here, so be gentle. :)
