I do think that running something more specific than "random versions
of the trunk" make sense. However, if a "release candidate" is really
something that we could consider releasing if it isn't too buggy,
maybe we need something different here. Perhaps after making the 1.5
branch we could roll an "alpha", which we have no plans to release but
that we recommend people who care about merging play around with?
