What Karel says. It would complicate matters for packagers, and definitely at
least part of existing users. That's why I was considering doing point releases
with autotools only for important fixes: Hackage users would get all point
releases, everyone else would get only some of them.

Not sure this is really a great idea, but it would reduce cost of the releases
somewhat. Maybe I should just stop being lazy... It's just when I see download
stats for the release candidate that it feels like waste of time. I understand
that most of our userbase gets their darcs from binary packages and we need to
trickle that newest and greatest version to them that way. But a little wider
circulation of pre-releases and rc's would be a motivating factor in making a
release, too.
