On the other hand, it's good to try to use what we've released to help
gauge where we're at.  It'll help motivate us to do better releases.

Just publish a snapshot "make dist" tarball somewhere and adapt the
scripts.  Or just skip the bootstrap step and use a kaffe compiled
somewhere else on your system.

I found a few bugs in Kaffe 1.1.0 with the kaffe-extras script.  If those
still exist in the CVS version, it would be nice to fix them in time
for 1.1.1 (next Sunday).
