Whilst I wouldn't condone not testing code before submitting, I
personally don't regard it as unexpected that a pull of the latest CVS
copy may not necessarily work.

The issue I have with WSRP4J is that (as far as I know), it hasn't
published a more or less stable alpha or beta download (let alone a
release), which forces those of us trying to use WSRP4J to pulling from
the CVS, and in some cases keeping known "safe" CVS pulls.

What I would like to see (and it is easy to say!!) would be some energy
into getting such a "stable" alpha release for download, so that the
reliance on CVS pulls (and breaks due to CVS pulls) would be reduced.
