Okay... well, then we can nix this tarball and tag/roll another later this

No big deal :-)

Roy's point was exactly this: tag/roll tarballs at will. If they seem fine,
then we release them. Otherwise, we just punt it and go for another one.

This is also why trying to label things as "beta candidate" or whatever is
troublesome. It really isn't, and somebody yanking it from the /dist/
directory could be misled. I might even suggest that we create a directory
called /dist/unreleased/ and drop them in there. We place them in dist after
they've been qualified.
