In my mind this beta will be relevant for about a week, at which point
we'd have another beta or an RC with a lot of bug fixes.  If we go
from waiting hours for the committers to waiting 3 days for the PMC,
that's half its expected lifetime.  In other words I see this as
closer to a glorified nightly than An Official Release.
