Which is good. People who want stuff rather badly end up 
advancing the state of human civilization ;-) Now, as you
all are well aware, personally I'm in a "releases without
a really solid release management, QA and Sustaining
are pointless" camp. But I must give credit to Diego --
he's trying to change all things.

I believe this is a crucial point here. For example, regardless
of my personal attitude towards releases, I've seen a number
of them. Good and bad. That experience seems to be worth
taking into account. I'm sure others have the very similar bits
of personal experience as well. I don't think Diego took
any of that into account. 

Diego, please correct me if I'm wrong.
