As along as we are semi-ranting about builds, why isn't there a GNU
Guile 1.6.5 or 1.7.0-alpha1?   Having the nightly snapshots is nice,
but, the tagged builds are important, too.  Some of us boring,
unadventurous people avoid that whole scary nightly snapshots scene. :)

(And is there something one can volunteer to do to help that along?)
