Yes, it is always desirable to keep the existing version runnable.

Since I will submit code as JIRA issue or update from time to time as
the development proceeds, the initial submissions are only for
developers, will not be ready to run as GCv5, (e.g., it may have
seperate standalone nursery collector and mature collector). When GCv5
is developed reasonably complete in functionality, we will make it a
command line option. Or do you suggest to do it immediately?
