This is to get the feedback of people who are not routinely building
from svn, call them what you will.  (In my mind anyone who is not
building from svn is not really a dev, but if you want to include
"people who file bug reports" in that category, fine.)

This would be a nightly that is considered unlikely to blow up in your
face _too_ obviously, which is not the case for all nightlies.

If the nightlies were archived I would be fine saying "if you want to
test, use the nightly from 8-11 (guess we're up to at least 8-13 now);
it's relatively stable."  But they are not.
