SVN is one (good) thing, but pre-packaging is very bad. Who will decide 
whats good and whats not? There is no indipendent way for all styles of 
music. Whats good for electro is bad for classical and so on.  So 
prefiltering is not the right way. Reviewing afterwards regarding to 
cases of use is a more fair system.
