Yes, I think that's a valid argument. It might help in creating some
more traction focused around beta-testing 1.10 (in that case, maybe we
should call the next 1.10 pre-release a "beta" instead of an "alpha"
-- otherwise the announcement on our website might be a bit weird:
"Subversion 1.10 alpha 3 has been released. Please test and report
your feedback on beta-users_at_s.a.o" :-))
