I'll agree that the inverse of the above is true ;)))
But if you look at it over time, it averages out, making the net
effect equal 0.
anyway, I think we agree on the math, we just disagree on whether the
short term affect is worth it.
regardless of the outcome, I'm fine though, I think that soon enough
the releases (because of there nature) will become a feature freeze (as
more features get added, there are less features that need to be added,
plus the core is getting smaller soon, so the net effect will be more bug
fix releases and less feature releases)...
