I sure hope so! There has been discussions about it on and off, but we
have quite limited man power, so I hasn't happened yet. I'm setting up
a regression testing system (with buildbot) which will hopefully help
us getting there. Preferably we should have time based releases
(E.G. something like every 6 months).
