You are implying that we tend to release gobs of specs at one.  The  
reality is specs rarely change and when we do find a problem it is  
with one module not everything.

Only the specs being worked on would need build automation, and event  
then I would suggest G never uses SNAPSHOT specs.  Instead when the  
specs are mostly complete we release a M1 and when they are finished  
we release 1.0.  In that case no automation is necessary.
