Isn't this a nice success case for the alpha channel, where it found
a bug and now the bug is fixed?

I mean, I agree it would be smarter to have some sort of QA thing going
on before alpha releases too. But if the worry is "nobody tests stuff
before release", backing off so people only try the stable isn't going
to help the stable stay stable.
