I have no problem with frequent releases.  Nightly builds are a common 
and growing practice with agile companies, and in many ways it's very 
encouraging to see RunRev deploy quickly.

But with RCs we see quite a variance, sometimes weeks and sometimes 
hours, and it would be helpful to know if perhaps there were serious 
data-loss issues or other factors which determine when there are shorter 
intervals between releases.
