Understood. That probably needs to get written into the ReadMe stuff!
People/companies using Swish need to understand that bug fixes require
upgrades, and there really won't be a "stable release" that gets bugs
fixed without changing anything else.
It might be nice, however, to keep around a series of snapshots that
the developers think are most stable. That way people could choose
to do a minor upgrade to something that seems safe instead of going
all the way to the current bleeding edge code.
That's where a less formal release process comes into play. Right
before really big changes, and especially before introducing any
known incompatibility with prior versions, save off a zip file with
whatever has been out there for a while and seems safer than it will
