Ah - of other stuff.  I figured there was something missing.

Interesting question.  Could we ask ActiveMQ to do a 
ActiveMQ-3.0-pre-alpha-don'tuse.jar (or whatever they wanted to call 
it)?  yes, that would be a snapshot, but since it better be a 
functional snapshot (rather than somewhat random), couldn't that be a 
milestone release from ActiveMQ if we asked really, really nicely?
