Hey, this is a pretty radical idea. None of the projects I've seen
work that way, and it won't be possible to use this approach if we
have to make a 1.33.1. I'm not going to say flat out that it's the
wrong approach, but at least there ought to be a loud announcement
that we're thinking of turning the release procedure on its head.
