Not a good idea in my book: there is a reason it is on alpha.gnu.org:
this is development software straight from the tap.  It means that any
particular snapshot might turn out rotten.  Only a pick-and-test
procedure will avoid drawing a lemon reliably.  And that means that it
should get manually placed into TeXlive, not just as a random
snapshot.  That way, testers have a chance to change the choice of the
included version.
