I'm not an FFmpeg developer so I won't have the last word anyway, but...

This sounds to me like basically what you want to do is take some CVS
snapshots and tag them as good/bad and put the good ones more visibly
into the public.
I guess if somebody actually would be doing this testing/bookkeeping
even official FFmpeg releases could be done more frequently - I just
know that when we try to do an MPlayer release we usually don't find
enough people to even test half of the supported architectures/OSes.
So whatever will come out in the end, at least people testing things are
always welcome.
