I'd like to release debian packages to the 'experimental'[*] package
suite as soon as possible, so that users can get their hands on 1.4 and
start banging on it. Even with known bdb bugs in rc1, I'd rather have
something to put out there than not have something to put out there.
[*] Note: Debian 'experimental' comes with big warning flags and is
not intended to be used unless you enjoy dealing with brokenness.
It's considered much more risky than 'unstable', entirely
appropriate for an rc release of something.
Of course I _could_ just use unofficial tarballs or even snapshots, but
that would squander some goodwill so I won't. (:
