As Albert says, it's really a difference in perception. We decide to put 
tarballs up as soon as possible, even while we're still testing them. If we 
decided to run a test before that, we'd have people asking for it right away 
as well.

That is really easy to solve: Only build the tarballs we actually put our 
"final" tag on. You'll have the updates later in your repos, but you won't get 
any of the smoke test problem.
