  Good point and this might be one reason why we need a RC status
before going GA.  I know that on at least 2 platforms (windows,
netware), there would be a lot more testing and feedback from the
general user community if binaries were available.  Personally, I don't
normally roll and post binaries until the source code has reached some
status such as BETA.  In this case it appears that we are trying to go
directly from testing to GA with no real interim status designation. 
Should I change my practice and roll binaries anytime a tarball is
produced?  Where should I post the binaries, /~bnicholes, /dev/dist,

Just looking for some clarification,
