If you continue to consider it a feature,  it justifies (in your mind)
pushing broken packages into the repository but it does affect release
versions as well because we have to catch and fix bugs much later.   If
you maintain any of the critical path packages, it would be very useful
to test them more instead of just a mad version number chase.
