Snapshots are not generally considered stable. They are works in progress.
If submissions build, a new snapshot is created. If not, there's no
snapshot. Whether they "work" or not is determined by those that run them.
If you intend to try/use a snapshot, you should:
1. Backup any previous DLL/environment you have that you may want to fall
2. Be willing to try a few to see if they help solve your problems without
3. Report the results of (2).
4. Preferably be willing to help debug issues you find.
