I love these mails. Nice music to my hear......agility, reproducibility, control of complexity....
Imagine building a new vm each time a package changes. Is it not a dream?
Imagine soon we will be able to know when aperformance degrades because of a change and 
all that based on git hub and a nice hudson server. So people will be able to modify their vms and plugin and 
manage their life and publish improvements. Simply gorgeous. 

I think that what is important besides making VM compiling more mainstream is that it gives a good signal to 
the outside world. Yes investors/inventors/people on the edge
	yes we have processes, 
	yes we are concerned by quality, 
	yes we are concerned by reproducibility,...
