But when I think about it, it would perhaps nevertheless be a good idea. A 
script could somehow figure out what most receent revision that builds, and 
then commit a snapshot of that. What revision that builds could be determined 
by iteratively building, or query one of those cmake build farms(that's 
possible? no?).

It would perhaps have some interesting effects on how development would 
proceed. Everyone would be protected against build errors(if they use the 
generated snapshot), and the snapshot would "stall" as soon someone breaks 
the compile. Or perhaps confusion would be the result of all the 

HOwever, it would not be the same as kdelibs4_snapshot, since other factors 
plays in when that one is tagged.
