Makes sense, going a step ahead, if a committer could generously post
(rather than deploy) the bits in their personal webspace (rather than
a maven snapshot repository, which presumably is where folks can
unknowingly obtain the "premature" artifacts from) -- that would lower
the barrier for participation, which is a good thing IMO.
