Just because I think it's ready doesn't mean it's ready.

In this case I've been fairly successful from what I can tell with the xml-
support branch, but it didn't have to be that way, and I've certainly made 
some brown-paper-bag releases of kdesrc-build before because the amount of 
testing I'm able to dedicate is not sufficient.

Having other people use the software greatly helps testing (just ask dfaure 
:P) but requires that I actually push those commits somewhere. I'm not going 
to push them to master until I'm convinced it's actually stable enough, but 
I'm not going to get to that point just by testing myself...
