Why not tag and roll, despite BeOS? A lot of people can still test any
tarball that is provided. Sure, we won't call it "alpha" or "beta" quality,
but that doesn't mean it should be totally ignored by everybody.

The whole point is that it shouldn't be a time waster :-)  If we can get the
process to "type these few commands; while waiting, go read email", then
we're all set, and it doesn't matter how good or broken the tarball is.
