While this is nice, may I suggest that it is time to put aside/delay one
release cycle and come up with a binary update mechanism supported well by
the OS?  Increasing the speed of releases is good.  Increasing the number
of deployed systems out of date because there are no easy binary upgrade
mechanisms is bad.

It has been bad, it's getting worse.
