I think it needs to end in -SNAPSHOT for Maven to recognize it.  Do
you have a way to get the <currentVersion> out of project.xml/pom.xml
?  For VFS it's 1.0-RC8-SNAPSHOT.

The dated ones have some value.  If something goes wrong in "the
latest" nightly, you can change your pom to depend on yesterday's
until you sort out the problem.

This doesn't address Vincent's concern of having a stable build to
depend on, but that's what releases are for. :)
