I take no responsibility for builds that break .

I figure it's up to the person installing to make the decesion as to 
which branch to pull from. I'd like to have it give the user several 
options like "latest release", "-current", or the ability to pick a 
snapshot date or a tarball. If a build fails, then its time to start the 
source install anew.
