I think its better to have a timestamp and to create full nightlies
- not just snapshot jars, but full timestamted source and binary
tarballs as we used to.  FWIW, I think it is better not to push
snaps into maven repos, but rather to place tarballs in a location
where the sources and jars can be downloaded and unpacked.  This is
to emphasize that the reason we are providing them is for developers
to look at the sources and test with the jars, rather than to
encourage "snapshot dependencies."  If the machine account problem
has been solved from vmbuild to p.a.o, this should be pretty easy to
automate.  I may have old scripts around somewhere that worked
modulo this problem.
