The issue is that they replace the current stable installation, unless
you install them in parallel, in which case it make no sense to build
with system integration at all.

Developer Snapshots where named in times only the build
that could be installed beside a current stable installation, because
they use a different name: OOo-Dev. In Linux, for example, it installs


In times, builds with system integration where done only
for the Release Candidates (not even Alphas or Betas, IIRC).
