Such things have proven to be very unreliable in the past, due to the
volunteer nature of open source.  It would also require everyone
agreeing up-front - which rarely happens ;-)

Specifically for 3.1, everyone seems to want to do a release, and we
have plenty of new features to support that.  I expect it's close, but
the work still needs to be done.

Anyway, our new split branch_3x / trunk development model *should*
allow for more frequent releases in the future, once we get things
rolling.

Side note: I would submit that those projects that release every few weeks
add no additional value over our (currently) infrequent releases.  Due
to our high quality test suites and peer reviewed patches, I'd bet the
stability of our nightly snapshots over some of those other projects
any day!
