This means that your development cycle will have to coincide with the
development of a number of (experimental) JEPs :\ So you'll just retract
a feature that has been through beta testing because it still has an
'experimental' status? I you do; that's great :D But I'm afraid that's
not how it works in most case :? Could be wrong ofcourse.
All I wanted to say is that IMO you have to be very careful with testing
implementations in this way. As soon as a feature is implemented in a
public version or Trillian or in a version of Psi (and/or other 'big'
clients) then we're just stuck with that JEP for years to come :D
