While it would be nice if we had something like this, I'm not sure we really
want to embark down that path.   

There is already a lot of confusion over exactly what you get when you download
a nightly (many people think you get a completely new version of the Safari
browser as well as the WebKit frameworks) and changing the name would blur the
line of distinction between Safari and WebKit line even more.  

>From a technical perspective, we already do a fair bit of hackery to get the
nightlies working and doing this would involve more hackery that could cause
Bad Things(tm).

Mark will know for sure whether or not we really want to do this.
