I like the spirit of this idea, although I'm sure the details need a lot of 
working over. (This could, but wouldn't need to *replace* releases--it 
could simply augment the release creation process.)

I'm interested to hear other's ideas on why this is/is not a good idea, and 
what technical/logistical hurdles would prevent this from being done.
