I believe a reasonable (com)promise would be to guarantee repeatability
accross a given set of bugfix releases (for example, accross all 2.6.x
releases). We shouldn't necessarily commit to repeatability accross
feature releases, especially if it conflicts with desireable
opportunities for improvement.
