Umm, not this simple. One of the main idea behind a
pre-release distribution is that it be internally consistent; and all
package dependencies be satisfied within the pre-release
distribution. Now, suppose there is a shared lib pkg A. Pakcages B
through H depened on this package. Therefor, A-H came into the
pre-release. Now A has a bug report. What happens to packages B-H if
you just yank A out? The distribution os no longer releasable.
