Nightly snapshots of what? In the current scheme there's no branch where
hotfixes for 1.36 are supposed to be applied. Neither trunk nor release
branches are obviously not good for that since they get big changes.
Besides, do we have nightly snapshots of any branch? I don't see any
links on boost.org.
