Actually I think the timing couldn't be any better ! I'm certainly not proposing to
change any code / infrastructure right now. But as everybody right now is painfully
aware of the limitations of the current release process, I'd hope that it may
be possible to find some motivation / momentum to start thinking about enhancements
for the post 1.34 work.

FWIW, I believe that the required infrastructure for the use cases I suggested
earlier may be straight forward to add, and doesn't require any formal process.

However, all this certainly also fits into a wider discussion about build / test / release
infrastructure and process, which, then, needs a broader discussion.

There ought to be a way out of this deadlock...
