We have two development trees:

1) just 1.x.0 + bugfixes 
	occasionally released as 1.x.1, 1.x.2
	this is labeled "STABLE".
2) 1.x.0 + bugfixes + new features
	occasionally released as 1.(x+1)a1, 1.(x+1)a2, 1.(x+1)b1, 1.(x+1)b1,
	until 1.(x+1).0.
	This is labeled "EXPERIMENTAL".  "USE AT YOUR OWN RISK". "DO NOT TRY
	THIS AT HOME", etc.  :)  [1]

The "occasionally" in #2 is not synchronous necessarily with the 
"occasionally" in #1.

I think this is what you and I want.

	Brian



[1] - anyone ever read the Java use license?  They, uh, ask you to not 
use it to run a nuclear power plant, among other things.  :)
