At least they still test "real" releases..

So instead of making sure rc is really "release-candidate", we want to trick
people to test -pre as "real release", soon people will realize it and just
stop testing even real releases. The trick won't last. What other names will
we try then? Seriously, this is silly and the focus is wrong, and will
accomplish nothing but confusing people one more time.

Let's start by making rc really "release-candidate", not something with
last-minute unpredictable random changes. Why should I test rc when I know
the final release will be much different anyway? What is worse is that we
actually _complain_ about the fact that people do not take rc seriously,
while the release management doesn't take it seriously itself.
