I hope not. That would create lots of problems:

- There are multiple versions of the language.
- What happens when a version dies? What do you tell the 
developers (perhaps even businesses) that relied on a version 
they downloaded from the official homepage that now have a dead 
- What if a developer makes weird changes (like removing int, 
which would still be a subset) or goes Windows-only because of 
the burden maintaining for multiple OSes? Is that something that 
should be promoted on the official homepage?

These are just the problems that immediately come to mind. I'm 
sure there are others. Open source is wonderful because it lets 
things like this happen. That doesn't mean we want to promote 
them on
