We could make an argument either way. The other argument is when we do
a stable release we want to make sure that developers will be able to
build the ancient release with their current development system, which
might mean backporting build fixes for newer toolchains.

Renaming wouldn't hurt, although I find rolling to be a confusing
name. It's not rolling in the sense that Debian unstable or Rawhide
is; it's the latest release.
