As far as the alpha releases go, I wouldn't --- I see no evidence that
we have the manpower to formalize them any more than they are now.
I do like the idea of trying to reach out to more beta testers and
manage that phase more aggressively.  Maybe if we can make something
happen there, it would be possible to do the same for alphas later.
