I know Apple's staff wanted to release the nightlies... and I'm not talking about intuition here.

You're just not providing a true picture of history. Xcode was the predominant dev tools for WO until Apple dropped it... and then the masses looked for an alternative and got behind WOLips. Sure, the WOLips tools were around beforehand but were in no way in a ready state for the masses. That's all since changed...
