Look it's simple. We have x developers and QA people able to fix bugs.
For a certain RC we have y bugs. If you add a new feature, you will
probably introduce z bugs. Now, x/y is the amount of effort per bug
without the new feature, and it is certainly more than x/(y+z) - with
the new feature. Simple math.
