Ondřej, Paul - thanks for the input. I can see there can be genuine technical issues with a removal too. 

So, given that we are where we are, how about a warning along the lines of:

"The 1.4.0a1 release of OpenDNSSEC is included for testing purposes only. It should NOT be installed in production environments. 

Please see http://www.opendnssec.org/download/ for the latest stable release."
