Yup. That would be a lot of impact on developers/development. I sure hope
not! But, I guess we need to bite the bullet and initiate a conversation
(somewhere general, or with the board) on this matter. If we made it clear
(in the jar name, in the manifest?) that these were nightly builds and not
releases, I'd sure hope we could redistribute.
