I think this is documented in the changelog in the S::P::O CVS, except
perhaps the restricted temporary file reading on Win32 issue that I'd
like to fix some day.

HEAD has more bugs, less features, more dependencies, interesting only
to people who would like `check` to have less code (and I think I was
the only one who removed code from check, others would like it to have
/more/ code, like additional SOAP templates) and to people who need the
performance gains, which is us at most. Considering how previous alpha
tests drove attention to the code, I am not sure what the point would
be. It doesn't seem to help convince anyone to fix the known bugs. The
known bugs are documented in Bugzilla, comments in the source code and
perhaps #validator logs.
