You don't have to deal with CVS to get a head build.  You use the  
'cvs' version of Drupal <http://drupal.org/project/Drupal%20project/ 
cvs>.  That is essentially a nightly build (or an every-twelve-hour  
build or whatever), it's just not labeled as such.  Maybe it should  
be re-labeled or explicitly stated that the 'cvs' version is the  
bleeding-edge code.
