 So, how are users in our alphas then supposed to use Snowflake? Wouldn't
 it be smarter to have, say, Snowflake in our nightly builds first for a
 while, propagate that to get the browser proxy more widely distributed and
 then ship it in alphas? Right now all the users get is Snowflake not
 working which is sort of counterintuitive if we ship it in an alpha build
 (as showing it in the PT drop down box indicates that it is something
 which is actually usable).
