OK.  I'll ask.  Do we really want to make prealpha 
code available via FTP for everyone to get?  The CVS 
mechanism acts somewhat as a filter for those who want 
to try it.  First you must figure out CVS.

With FTP, will we have to start answering more questions
from those who don't really need to be running test code 

Although one very good arguement is that it provides a base 
to submit patches against.  Since the PDC stuff is getting more
widespread, this might be a good thing.
