I agree with this. I was thinking that--if we can--we should release a
1.23-based Imprudence viewer as a test build along with 1.2, if for no other
reason than LL suddenly decided to surprise us by making 1.23-based
adults-only viewers the new defacto mandatory on the 15th.

How often do you want to release a snapshot? Every one week, two? Or every
so often when we get a lot of features going? For me, it'd be nice to have
some sort of schedule, but that's how I work.

@Jacek: are we still doing nightly source drops? I just realized I haven't
merged back into my "next" branch in forever...

"We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear
into an age of unreason if we dig deep in our history and doctrine and
remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not from men who feared
to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes which were for the
moment unpopular. We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot
escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of the
Republic to abdicate his responsibility." -- Edward R. Murrow, March 9, 1954
