If I was sufficiently comfortable with gub (and git) to do this,
we would have had the release months ago.

Good point about people forgetting, though -- ok, let's drop this
idea.  Instead, I'll make one build attempt each morning; that
way, I only get a single snapshot anyway, so people can commit
whenever they want without disrupting anything.

Since I'm in at 8am and nobody else shows up until 9:30, nobody
will notice that I'm not doing university stuff, and later in the
day when they *are* around, I'll be doing what I'm supposed to be
