If that does happen you should expect A LOT more traffic since people will
often download the latest version. Seeing, however how often compatibility
changed between recent releases I think that most professionals will stick
to 'official' releases.

+1 on the automated notifier for broken builds. Possible drawback is that if
not all possible build systems are equally supported, it will be easy to
miss a broken build for a specific configuration. Eventually this could lead
to 'preferred' build system with more support, which might not stick well
with some developers. For example on Windows I use MinGW for building while
official releases use VS. Personally I'm sort of fine with it, realizing how
much work is needed to maintain both systems. I'd still like to use gcc
