Agreed. We made a choice as a community early on to avoid doing
that. (Almost) always deployable is (almost) always testable; if
trunk is broken, then as a developer working on a bugfix or new
feature you have to hunt for a known-working state in the history to
develop against and then rebase onto all the broken and cross your
fingers that you're not making the job of whoever has to untangle
trunk before release that much harder.
