no, you can't "optimize away" betas. they are publically released and
consequently have a relatively long cycle, while "my" "pre"s are internal
"releases" that resemble the former half-hearted RCs.
you are right that RCs could be left out at all, as the criteria for the
pre->RCs transition are the same as for the RC->release transition, so
it basically only delays the release by one week, but a) this delay is
probably _good_ and b) while packagers _should_ make packages of pres,
they _must_ do packages of RCs to get ready in time.

Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done.
