1. In some packaging software that will fuck up package versioning and
   updates beyond repairs.
2. If there is any review process, maintainer will have hard time
   explaining why he packages snapshot - it is widely believed that
   maintainers make releases when they consider software stable enough
   for packaging.
3. It requires quirks that suck so much that it is not suckless any
