No. This is the perfect case of why we want to eat our dog food. In a
perfect world, we would have deployed rc4 to svn.collab.net for a few days.
Then, we likely would have spotted this regression and then fixed it
instead of including the regression in 1.1.0.

We wrote the code, so we sure better be able to cope with the latest
versions! We *want* to see these problems before our other users do.
svn.collab.net has the highest percentage of users that'll be able to fix
any problem in Subversion. It's unlikely any other public repository does.

I really don't like the implication that the people who wrote the code
don't trust it while telling everyone else to upgrade. That's bad. --
