Sure, we could do that. But as you know, the previous discussion
couldn't come to an agreement about what to call such a release.
Every one of the suggestions has at least one big drawback, so basically
what we do now seems to be the best solution.

We linked our trunk against the svn trunk before without any problems.
Of course not for the releases but for the nightly builds. And that's
what we will do again.
