And I am sure there are other differences as well that I am not directly aware of.

Ok, I can understand that it is more difficult than it seems because
there is more to it than just stripping off the -SNAPSHOT.

But the main thing I'm thinking about is the fact that the package
hasn't changed.  So why should I have to rebuild the code?  That not
only wastes time but more importantly it adds risks that the build may
not be identical to the snapshot build that has been tested, due to
obscure environment setting that changed on the build machine (e.g.,
suppose you installed a newer Windows SDK and that somehow affected
the build).

That's what I'm most worried about.
