I find it scary to think that one release might contain Maven  
artifacts, for instance, while another, done by a different person,  
might not, simply b/c the RM doesn't feel like it.  I don't agree  
here, and I don't agree for Solr.  Stable RM is as important as  
backward compatibility, if not more so.
