What is the issue with snapshots that have system integration?   Do we
never have bugs with system integration?  Shouldn't we encourage
testing with something that is as close as possible to what we will

Ditto with fill translations:  We are currently discussing some major
changes to the translation workflow.  Are there possible bugs that
could be introduced and not detected if we did only language packs?
