I've been using TL2010-pretest to update a number of documents and
everything has been working nicely -- I hope others who are
not affected (or can work around) by previously reported issues are
also putting TL2010-pretest to good use.

Maybe there should be a "swap" -- "-pretest" becomes "texlive" and a
small number of the existing TL2009 "texlive" repos are preserved as
"-previous" for those who may need to repair or restore (e.g., update
a DVD install when replacing a stolen laptop) the previous version.
