With emphasis please on my "normal service will be resumed shortly", I'm 
not suggesting that the core developers gratuitously break things. I was 
thinking of cases where something is changed in one or other of the 
projects, and where somebody knows that this will cause problems for 
minutes or hours (or, in very rare cases, days). Some sort of "health 
warning" would be useful, so that people (or scripts working on their 
behalf) know that it's best to hold off any updates to their local copy 
until the situation is resolved.
