I'm thinking of this while we're talking about target audiences and 
their experiences... Where was it again I had heard an argument for 
improved consumer experience before?

And so, because I've had this kind of conversation with the board 
before, not because I actually care about the answer on any of those 

- How many extra builds do we anticipate for unfrozen rawhide vs. 
rolling or pending release?

- How many extra resources in terms of storage, man-hours and ...

well. you know. you've been there. up and until you get to the point 
with the million dollar question...

And, FWIW, I think Jesse has a *great* proposal right there. When I say 
*great* I mean to say "Do it, get it done, before f13 -no pun intended, 
please! Need help?"
