Exactly! And we have a good tool for this. People can opt to do
selective updates. They can just ignore the "Enhancement" updates and
do the "Bugfix" updates only. They can even do a subset of these
bugfix updates if they consider the bugfixes not important.

I didn't see many users complaining that there are too many updates.
But I saw many pissed off users because they don't have certain
updates and because they are told to wait 6 months.
