	Which sucks; hopefully the Windows & Mac builds have been use-able for
testing - and of course, the snapshots of them.

	The danger of this - is that by introducing further delay into the
release pipeline - we slow down our ability to respond to bugs that are
found, and since we are releasing a build per week anyway - we can only
really choose to miss out a week: which isn't that wonderful :-) Already
we only have a few days to fix a bug in RC<n> and get the fix out in

	-Far- better for people to be running and using the daily snapshot
releases and reporting bugs against them - instead of waiting for RCs

	Having said that - warning that RC1 may be a bit rough in the release
notes is a good idea :-) - although, given that this is caused by some
obscure compiler problem - apparently only present on the gross / old
system we compile the binaries on for Linux, I'm optimistic that once it
is fixed we'll not be in such terrible shape.
