Your procedure --- more so than even Beman's original proposal which has
some of the same characteristic --- seems to ignore many users' need for
traditional point releases that are identical to a previous release
except for critical bugfixes. I probably shouldn't be complaining since
it's to my benefit that people need Boostpro's enterprise support
contract in order to get that kind of update.
