What I'd like is a way to try new things without shoving them into
frozen before they're ready. I think there are two problems: one is the
problem of packages that get outdated, and the other is new and
innovative things we want to try. In many cases, the former is solved by
a simple recompile and there aren't too many complications. It would be
nice if we had some way of integrating that sort of change without
pulling the other along because we've reached some arbitrary date.
