Although it isn't that +1000000, but +1000 from me, too. I haven't ever 
thought about it before. That's a very good question why Geronimo relies 
on so many SNAPSHOTs. Aren't they a sign we depend on an unsable ground? 
I've seen at least one project, where a major bug fix leads to a new 
release (cf. Mevenide). I like it so we could decide that all of our 
SNAPSHOTs should be reverted to their latest official releases and when 
there's anything in a SNAPSHOT we really need, we could gently ask its 
community to release a new version. I think it greatly improves the 
quality of the whole software stack. I like it!
