We know how branches work, that's fine and all, but we're not going to start 
a seperate branch. The code-freeze may not be in effect for an entire week, 
we'll have to just wing it like last time. I just want to get newer 
pre-releases out there so people will use them and give feedback on more 
recent code, than pre2.

It will also give us a better idea what's going on and thigns that may have 
to be undone again for some reason.
