Guys, I'm paying NZD 0.20/MB. Keeping up with Subversion HEAD I can justify
(even though the commit that touched every file was, um, ugly). Keeping up
with Apache (and/or APR) HEAD is a lot harder to explain than "the latest
release".

I don't mind builds being broken by supporting the latest release; I *do*
mind having builds broken by dependence on unreleased builds of
already-released software.

In other words, I can justify the bandwidth cost of downloading Apache
2.0.44, because it's a new, official release that subversion requires. I
*cannot* justifying sync'ing to the Apache HEAD at regular intervals, even
for major bugfixes. I'm already the biggest bandwidth hog in the company as
it is.

Just a note from an individual in a small island nation with limited
bandwidth.
