You must be new here.  If we allow it, it'll be used.  Not only will it
be used, but the users will expect us to support it.  We are already
understaffed to support simple things like the stages and the minimal
images.  Adding yet another set of stages that could much more easily be
broken due to lower QA just isn't something we have the ability to do,
even if we wanted to do it.
