That's my reaction too.  The overhead of a "dev" release would be just
as high as a full release, and we don't really have enough manpower
to do two releases a year.  We *definitely* haven't got enough manpower
to double the number of back branches we are trying to keep patched.
So this could only work if dev releases are abandoned from a support
perspective when the next full release comes out, and that will entirely
guarantee that no DBA will use one in production.
