I am not referring to code that may be delivering 100% of what it is
expected to deliver.  Such code need not be put in a "Tech Preview"
category.  You may call this Tech Preview category as our own "incubator".
Whatever is put under Tech Preview will be improved and  "graduate" into the
next release (which will mostly be from the 'trunk') based on community's
response.  If the community does not see a value, we may even get rid of it
altogether.
