Catchy, but potentially self-defeating. This will catch the most obvious 
bugs (and we already have that) but for regressions we need comparison, 
and that involves looking at more than one item. (Or a great memory.)

How can people report a bug if they never notice it? People see these 
things mainly when they are working between versions. That's the crux.

Here's something that's still simple enough to meme, yet targeted well 
enough to actually help: install the latest build AND an older version!

Best wishes,
